2015 HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL TEAM PREVIEWS

 

WEST ORANGE-STARK MUSTANGS

2014 Record: 13-3 Overall, 4-0 District

District 9-4A-II Champion; Class 4A-II State Finalist

 

While the folks in Orange were extremely proud of West Orange-Stark’s march to the State 4A-II Championship Game, they are not satisfied.  Rather, it left them craving the taste for more.  Although the Mustangs were hard hit by graduation, they don’t intend on rebuilding…they appear ready to reload and the expectation of a 4A-II state championship is again in their sights.

 

Head Coach: Cornel Thompson

 

Assistant Coaches:  Ed Dyer (Offensive Coordinator), Mike Pierce (Defensive Coordinator), Del Basinger (Offensive line), Carl Broussard (Offensive line), Terry Joe Ramsey (Quarterbacks), Jacoby Franks (Wide receivers), Russell Bottley (Wide receivers), Stephen Westbrook (Defensive line), Joseph Viator (Defensive line)

 

Offense

The big questions surround the Mustang offense which returns a lone starter, but yet a very important one.  Junior Jack Dallas (2363 passing yards, 31 TDs) returns to lead the West Orange spread offense.  While much of Dallas’ supporting cast has yet to be determined, you can bet that the line, led by senior center Tristan Scott, will be ready to plow the road.

 

Defense

WO-S’ vaunted Chain Gang defense appears ready to hold things down as four starters return from last years’ squad.  Key members of the Mustang 50 defense will include Mandel Turner-King, who will lead the Mustang front line.  Senior Steven Tims returns to lead the West Orange-Stark linebacker group along with junior Justin Brown.  Junior Malick Phillips will be looked upon the anchor the West Orange secondary.

 

Special Teams

Senior Ryan Heisser is expected to handle the place kicking duties.  Dallas and junior K.J. Miller will handle the punting.

      The HJ job is tough for anyone to take.  It does not pay very well, LOW BUDGET, the district will not improve facilities(you can see that by not having baseball lights.. still the laughing stock of the state), Jr. high in cubicles(FEMA will not give them any money until they raise the old high school up like 2 ft.. which will not happen), the people in the district will not pass a bond(they feel the money from last bond was squandered, things that were supposed to be done were not), new AD will not be able to run a 4A athletic program correctly without interference from other head coaching sports (this will not change, look at Admin., any other school in the state of Texas if the head of other sports have any problems with the way the AD is running things... they would be gone.. that is not going to happen at HJ.  Until these things are fixed.. HJ will be nothing but a stepping stone and will get only coaches that will use it that way.

      There are about 7 people in all of Sour Lake that care about football. For the rest of the community it is just an excuse to have cheerleaders, a marching band and a drill team.

      You are correct...that is not a fantastic record. However, don't you think being successful is a little bit deeper than just winning and losing? He may be a good football coach...he may not be. I don't know but I'm not going to judge him on his win loss record at a school that traditionally does not win much in football.  I thought he was the coach when they broke that playoff drought years back. AHuddleston says that was under Franklin, but wasn't Joubert the coach when they returned to the playoffs the next year? If you want to win, you have to have athletes. Bill Belichick was 36-44 in five years with the Browns. 214-74 with the Patriots over 18 years. Is he that much better of a coach since he left Cleveland? I'm sure he's better because of experience, but it has just been a better situation with some great players along the way. Point is, Joubert has had a good season with some athletes. Maybe it was a fluke? Maybe it was the only time he has been able to field kids where they weren't completely outmatched? Maybe his win/loss record would be completely different in a different situation. Do you think he would have the same win/loss record over the past four years if he was the head coach at WOS? No, he would be in the playoffs making deep runs because the level of athletes (not saying he would have made it to the title game). Maybe he would do better there. Maybe not, but I don't think he would do much different than Martel and Sloan.

      STARBUCKS you guys will argue over any and everything. 5 day conversation.

      If you want to hire a puppet to coach football so you can stay decent at thump-thump, be my guest. I'm sure WO-S, Liberty, Silsbee and HF will really appreciate it.
