This season, in partnership with Chevy, we've highlighted some tremendous Texas communities and their Hometown Heroes. We've been overwhelmed by the incredible stories many of you have shared with us and feel honored to be able to share them with the rest of MaxPreps' members.
To bring you up to date, here are a few that we have released this season:
- Coppell High School, Coach Joe McBride:
One of the top programs in Texas remains inspired by the late Jacob Logan. Find out how the Dallas-area powerhouse - which has gone undefeated in the regular season two of the past three seasons - has kept his memory alive.
- Aledo High School, Coach Tim Buchanan:
What began 21 years ago with 17 varsity players has blossomed into a Class 4A powerhouse at Aledo under head coach Tim Buchanan. Under the veteran coach's direction, the Bearcats have won four state titles and produced one of high school football's legendary performers in Johnathan Gray.
- Brownwood High School, legendary broadcaster Dallas Huston:
Dallas Huston didn't let an Adam's apple injury stop him from becoming one of the most legendary broadcasters in the history of Texas high school football. Huston has been broadcasting Brownwood Lions games since 1963 and on the call for six state championship game victories.
- Lake Travis High School, Coach Hank Carter:
In 2010, an unproven 33-year old named Hank Carter stepped in took over a program that had won three consecutive state titles and 32 games in a row overall. Now in his fourth year, Carter has helped the Cavaliers extend one of the greatest runs in Texas high school football history.
- Texas City High School, Armanti and D'Onta Foreman:
Future Longhorns and twin brothers Armanti and D'Onta Foreman are the quintessential high school football heroes in this town of 45,000 - appropriately named Texas City. The Foremans are in the midst of special senior seasons.
We have 3 more Hometown Heroes to highlight between now and December 6th so stay tuned to www.MaxPreps.com/HometownHeroes to catch what's coming up next. Additionally, because we realize heroes aren't limited to the lone star state, we've been collecting your tales from across the country and will be highlighting five of them in the coming weeks. If you'd like to share a Hometown Hero story, please send firstname.lastname@example.org by 11/22.
