    Well, Port Isabel is looking for a new AD/HFC, as previous coach Jason Strunk was hired as an AD out of state.

    Compound that with what's going on regarding COVID-19........no fun down in Port Isabel right now. No off-season, no nothing. Hoping the kids are putting in some work at least.

    Air raid coach or Slot T/Wing T coach?

    Hopefully its option 2 bring back the fans lost when they went with the Lyford coach few years ago. Pretty good district.

    Hopefully not a spread or air raid coach. That offense literally KILLED our program. (just like I told you it would)

    I, personally, am hoping for a ground & pound coach. Preferably a Slot-T coach. PI has a good group of kids coming up and these kids are built for a ground & pound style of offense.

    Well, word came out that 45 applied for the open Port Isabel AD/HFC position. One name stands out, current Edinburg Vela OC Sean Van Der Merghel. Though I've heard nothing but good things about him at Vela, I'm afraid that style of offense won't really work at Port Isabel, especially if the last few seasons were any indication of that.

    Hopefully the PI school board picks a coach that runs the slot T or wing T. Something the kids are use to.

    That's what I'm hoping for.

    Like I've been telling folks, Port Isabel kids are just built different. Even despite our lack of size, ground & pound has always worked. Last 3 years using a spread system... 2-7, 4-6, 3-7. IMHO, the ol' ground & pound needs to come back to Port Isabel.

    Sinton returns a good portion of their team with 4 of 5 offensive linemen. Some other returning for 2020 season. (hopefully there is a season to play)

    Meh. Hire the best coach you can hire and let him coach up the players.

    Slot's got limitations, especially deep in the playoffs.

    Didn't you guys lose to a Wing-T team in the final? Asking for my friend in NW Texarkana.

    That's a good point, one that's hard to debate. However, we did make the playoffs grinding through slots and wings, LOL. Losing the state championship to a very athletically gifted team.....I believe their D-Line were all D-1 recruits. Regardless, we were never out of that game, two plays got away from us. You can absolutely win state running 97% of the time, it's just harder IMO.

    Agree, they're down to the top 10 finalists i believe, but some of these coaches records are...not that appealing.

    One of finalists, went 7-23 in the his last 3 yrs and ran the ball 63% of the time (no playoffs)
    A different one ran the ball 70% of the time in his last 3yrs with an overall record of 5-25 (no Playoffs)

    I get it, board wants to bring in someone with good AD skills, but PI really needs to pick a proven winner (recent-wise) as well.

    Two 6A Off. Coordinators finalists, from Nikki Rowe(19-14) and E. Vela (33-6) should really be considered having the upper hand, but u cant tell with THIS group of school board members.
