Huskies: New district, new coach and new attitude

20120813 Football Juarez Lincoln Huskies -Preview lg-4Juarez Lincoln Huskies (L-R) Israel Garza (DB), Francisco Contreras (C), Martin Diaz (RB), Kevin Ruiz (LB), Ramiro Garza (QB) and Jose Jasso (DL) are some of the Huskies starters hoping to bring home more wins this season. Progress Times photo by Luciano GuerraIn the four years that La Joya Juarez-Lincoln High School (LJJL) has been in existence, their varsity football program has had its ups and downs. Unfortunately for Huskies fans, players and former Head Coach Aaron Garcia, the downs consistently outnumbered the ups. As a result, Coach Aaron Garcia is out and Coach Tomas Garcia is in.

In his first ever head coaching opportunity, Tomas Garcia knows that his work is cut out for him. He’s more than ready, however, to take on the challenge of turning around a program that has never won more than four games in any one season.

“The first year the Huskies had four victories. The second year they had three and the past two years they were 2-8 both years,” said Garcia.

Eagles ready to soar

20120806 Football Mission Eagles -Preview lg-13 WEBMission Eagles football players Alberto Roque, Erick Flores, George Gonzalez, Ray Osoris, Nick Garza (back row) and Sergio Guerrero, Juan Rios, Jose Serrato and Randy De La Garza (front row) are ready to fly high in 2012. Progress Times photo by Luciano GuerraLast year, the Mission Eagles opened their season with impressive victories over San Antonio Holy Cross and their cross-town rivals, Veterans Memorial High School. Sadly for Eagles fans, those turned out to be their only two victories of the season as they ended the 2011 football season with a 2 -8 record.

Fortunately for Eagles fans, players and coaches what happened in 2011 stays in 2011. So why should 2012 be any different? One reason is as a result of the UIL’s recent realignment, the Mission Eagles are now back in 4A after a two-year stint as a barely 5A school.
