Wildcat alums Che Hendrix and Brett Sawyer will be coaching in the state football championships this weekend, but they won’t be alone. Stoney Pryor, graduate of LHHS’ class of 1990, will lead College Station High School as they fight for a second straight 5A Division I title.
“This is what you play for. This is what you come in in the summer for … all that work we did in the heat, in the two-a-days, in spring ball,” said Pryor, in his first year as head coach for the Cougars. He began serving as offensive coordinator and head girls soccer coach when the school opened in 2012.
Pryor played safety for the ’89 district champion Wildcats, and he’s among several LHHS alums still coaching across the country. His squad made it to the third round of the playoffs, and his work on and off the field earned him the prestigious Davey O’Brien scholarship.
“We talked about it being a 1-0 mentality all year, and you stack up those 1-0s and see what happens,” Pryor said. “We’ve stacked ‘em up. We’ve seen what happens, and we get to go to Dallas.”
Hendrix and Sawyer’s Boerne Greyhounds (15-0) face China Spring (14-1) for the 4A District I championship Friday at 3 p.m. at AT&T Stadium. Pryor’s Cougars (13-2) play Aledo (13-2) Saturday at 11. Tickets are available online here. Go Cats!
