The series will continue through June 15. If you have a suggested story for the “What Might Have Been” series, please contact Big Country Preps at Evan.Ren@BigCountryPreps.com.
For much of his career, 39-year-old Daniel Price had been patiently waiting to get his shot.
He had long wished to be the man on the headset, manning the sidelines in crucial situations and leading a football program of his very own.
In February, he was given that opportunity when Early ISD named him to replace athletic director and head football coach Blake Sandford, who resigned in December.
