Like Big Country Preps co-founders Evan Ren and Daniel Youngblood, Wichita Falls Time Record News area writer Zach Duncan has been covering high school sports in his market for a long time.

Entering his 15th football season with the Wichita Falls newspaper, Duncan has seen more great games than he can count and worked with some outstanding coaches and players. This week, he took some time to share some his favorite football stories and talk shop with Evan and Daniel.

Also in this episode, Evan and Daniel discuss District 3-3A Division I and District 7-2A Division II — two all-area leagues that should be competitive from top to bottom.

  1. Great listen! One of my best memories from covering Munday was the 68-66 win over Haskell from 2014. Unexpected track meet.

  2. I don’t think Coach West has ever tried to mislead you, even though it may seem that way. I remember that year, I believe we had lost three starters going into the two biggest district games. The replacements, including the center, had zero varsity experience. It wasn’t pretty but they got the job done! He doesn’t take any opponent lightly, ever. To the extreme, lol. That is part of what makes him such a great coach. Cisco is blessed to have him leading the Loboes!

  3. Don’t worry Lobofan, we’re all big fans of Coach West. We just get a kick out of how cautious he is when talking about his own program. It’s kind of a running joke because if you don’t know Coach West or how good the Cisco program is perennially, it’s real easy to be misled by him. We know it’s not anything malicious or calculated. He’s just naturally very cautious.

    One of my favorite coaches of all time to work with, former Wylie boys basketball coach Russell Perkins, was the exact same way. He’d have you convinced by the end of a conversation with him that his state-worthy team was going to have trouble with its 10-21 bi-district opponent.
