The Paducah Dragons have some new fire at the top as former Loop Coach David Donnell takes over the pigskin program.
"It's a great opportunity. They're known for all their athletes. I was just lucky the school board and administration picked me. I think it's gonna be a great deal. I hope to be there a while."
Non-District won't have a breather on it, but it should prepare the Dragons for district.
"Our schedule is brutal. I'll just say that. We start the year off in Borden County to play Richland Springs. We play Borden County, Follett, Valley. It's brutal."
In District with Knox City, Rotan and Spur, excitement is hot for the Dragons.
"The school board is all fired up. I'm all fired up."
