Change is again happening in Merkel.
After less than a year and only one football season, Merkel HC Britt Hart was named as the next HFC/AD at nearby Stamford. Hart posted a 3-6 record in his one season leading the Badgers and he holds an overall record of 65-23 as a head coach with stints of one season at High Island and Merkel and an impressive run of five seasons at Falls City.
Merkel will again have to try get some kind of stability in their athletics department as they look for another head coach, as the next hire will be the Badgers fourth head coach in four seasons.
Blake Weston Returns to Sonora
Reagan County head coach Blake Weston returns to Sonora, where he spent 10 years and nine football seasons as an assistant coach. This time he does it in the role of AD/HFC. Weston, a Medina Valley alum had spent the last four seasons as the AD/HFC at Reagan County where he led the Owls to three playoff appearances in his four seasons.
He takes over a proud Sonora program that hasn’t had the success they are used to having the past few years due to a shrinking enrollment and a dip in the talent pool. Weston is well-thought of in Sonora having lasted through three separate coaching changes during his time as an assistant and he’ll need all that good-will going into a place like Sonora, which is notoriously tough on coaches having run through eight different head coaches since 2006 (David Sine is listed twice as he had two separate stints).

Seguin Brings Craig Dailey Home
Seguin ISD on Friday brought a hometown guy back home to lead their athletics program by naming Clear Springs head coach Craig Dailey as their next HFC/AD.
He replaces Travis Bush, who departed in late February to take over at New Braunfels Canyon.
Dailey, a 1999 graduate of Seguin High School, played collegiately at Texas Lutheran before joining the staff at Seguin in his first coaching job out of college where he spent three years. Dailey then went to Clear Springs where he was on staff for seven seasons before moving over to Katy High for two years.
He was named head coach at Clear Springs in 2016 and in five seasons at the helm he’s posted a 37-18 overall record and leading the Chargers to the post-season in all five seasons.
