FEATURE: Longtime Wylie coach Hugh Sandifer ‘honored’ by ‘humbling’ homecoming celebration

Longtime Wylie football coach Hugh Sandifer never in his wildest dreams imagined having a statue of himself inside a stadium with his name on it. But such was reality on Friday, when the school honored the legendary mentor as part of its homecoming celebration.

After being inducted into the WISD Hall of Honor alongside his wife and longtime Wylie counselor Brenda earlier in the day, Sandifer joined a crowd of supportive fans inside Hugh Sandifer Stadium to watch his former team rout the Wichita Falls High Coyotes 44-14. 

The game served as a fitting end to a day devoted in large part to honoring Sandifer, who came to Wylie in 1979 intending to coach there just one year.
