District: UIL 11-4A-II

2020 Overall Record: 8-1

2020 District Record: 6-0 (District Champion)

 

STADIUM INFORMATION

Name: Dan R. Hooks Stadium

Address: 1619 Newton St., West Orange, TX

Capacity: 9,092

OVERVIEW

2020 was a bit of an odd season for the West Orange-Stark Mustangs for the first time in head coach Cornel Thompson's tenure, the Mustangs failed to advance to the Regional Finals.  In 2021, the Mustangs look to change that as nine offensive starters and five returning starting defenders look to keep the Mustangs atop 11-4A-II and push them back into the State Championship picture.  

 

COACHING

Head Coach: Cornel Thompson

Assistant Coaches: Mike Pierce (Defensive Coordinator), Ed Dyer (Offensive Coordinator), Hiawatha Hickman (Defensive Line), Taran Hebert (Defensive Ends), Phillip Mattingly (Wide Receivers), DePauldrick Garrett (Running backs), Russell Bottley (Wide Receivers), Terry Joe Ramsey (Quarterbacks)

 

OFFENSE 

Nine starters return to the Mustang offense in 2021.  While the battle to replace the graduated Pop Terrell, there will be plenty of talent around him as senior running back Elijah Gales (1st team all-district) returns with junior Jamaal Shaw (2nd team all-district) making major contributions.  Senior wide outs Jaiden Jones and Dontrey McClain and junior wide out Jailen Brown and senior tight end Carmello Jones return to the receiver group which will also see contributions from junior wide out Darren Anderson.  The Mustangs return a veteran offensive line as senior Demetrius Hunter (Honorable mention all-state) will be joined on the line by guard Andrew Wilson, senior tackle Bryson Jordan (2nd team all-district) and junior tackle Davin Heard.  

               

DEFENSE

 Five starters return to the Mustang 50 defense in 2021.  The Mustangs will be particularly strong up front as the defensive ends McClain (1st team all-district at outside linebacker) and Brown will be joined by tackles Jones and Jordan (2nd team all-district).  Senior linebacker Quinton Walker will provide depth at linebacker with Gales (2nd team all-district) returning to the group.  Jones (1st team all-district at safety) will be counted on to anchor a young Mustang secondary.    

   

SPECIAL TEAMS

Junior Christian Quiteno will be doing the place kicking for West Orange-Stark. Gales will be the primary kick returner.

    • Off topic, I know: the most grueling sport I have ever played was raquetball......notice I said “that I have played”
    • This one is for my favorite Catholic 😉   A teenaged boy goes to confessional.  “Forgive me Father for I have sinned.  I have been with a loose girl.” The priest asks, “Is that you, Little Johnny?” ”Yes, Father, it is.” ”And who was this girl you were with?” ”I can’t tell you Father.  I don’t want to ruin her reputation.” “Well Johnny, I’m sure to find out her name sooner or later, so you may as well tell me how.  Was it Emily Jones?” ”I cannot say.” ”Was it Lauren Peter’s?” ”I’ll never tell Father.” ”Was it Amelia Parker?” ”I’m sorry, but I cannot name her.” ”Was it Grace Smith?” ”My lips are sealed.” ”Okay, so it was Mia O’Malley then?” ”Please Father.  I really can’t tell you.” The priest sighs in frustration.  “You’re very tight-lipped, and I admire that.  But you have sinned my son, and you have to atone.  You can no longer continue to be an altar boy until 4 months have passed.  Now go and behave yourself.” ”Yes, Father.” Johnny walks back to his pew, and his friend Jimmy slides over and whispers, “What’d you get?” Little Johnny grins... “Four months vacation and 5 good leads!”
    • The problem is that most smaller school districts will now not be able to afford to hire retired teachers due to the fact that they will have to kick in the 15% to TRS. Before, if a retired teacher sat out a year (which is mandatory) then rehired to teach (which enables the teacher to draw two salaries) that teacher had to kick in the 15% of the rehire salary to TRS. There are a lot of school districts that hire retired teachers but having them pay the 15% will knock most of these districts  out of the loop. My wife just retired from teaching after 32 years. We are moving to the beach. She had planned to sit out her mandatory year and hire in at either East Chambers, Hamshire-Fannett, High Island or Galveston ISD (Crenshaw Elementary on Bolivar). Other than GISD, I highly doubt the other school districts will be willing to hire due to the 15%.
