  • Coach: Shannon Jolley
    Looking Back at 2012-2013:
    Season Record: 8-5 Overall, 4-3 District
    At Home: 4-2
    On the Road: 4-3
    PF: 312
    PA: 279
    Four seasons. That is all it took for Shannon Jolley to lead his Mustangs to their first district title in years.
    The original freshman who started their high school careers under Jolley's new regime graduated this past year. Sheyne Stafford, the running back who led the team's offensive production with a new school record of over 1800 rushing yards and scoring 21 touchdowns, is now gone.
    Beau Roseblock, a staple in the tough defense, led the team in interceptions. Roseblock has also moved on. Logan Shinn, Jacob Kirkweg, Kyle Pitman, Lee Thacker, they're gone.
    And this season's senior class is not as big, nor as strong.
    But Coach Shannon Jolley sees the potential, and stresses to his team that they have to find what they have to offer. He knows they can be a strong team.
    The influence Jolley has had on this team, this school, and even the community, is something to see. He has rebuilt the team from the ground up, molded them into a playoff team. He has restored the Mustangs to a winning fashion, with the support of the community. Jolley has restored the Mustang Pride in football.
    And he has done more. More and more, the players are going to a post-secondary education or joining the army. Jolley and his staff place emphasis in not just football excellence, but excellence in their everyday lives. He sees his job as a coach, not just teaching football, but showing them how to be good men.
    This season, the Mustangs will put it all on the shoulders of Wyatt Greenwalt, their senior quarterback. With the help of Raymond Kwok in the backfield and Dalton Lister, the offense will try to re-establish that offense which had such a formidable rushing attack in 2012.
    The defense will work out of a new scheme, with the departure of their defensive coordinator, but the team has adjusted well to the changes made under their new staff.
