WHITHARRAL, TX (KCBD) - Whitharral has promoted assistant Austin Flores to be the new Head football coach for the Panthers. He replaces Clayton Fryar, who has decided to go back to being assistant coach and head boys basketball coach. Flores is excited for the opportunity.
"I'm real grateful that Mr. Sharp and Coach Fryar felt that it was time for me to take over and they could trust me with this. I'm real excited to get started and I think next year could be real successful for us."
Last year, Whitharral made the playoffs and despite being 45 point underdogs, the Panthers upset State ranked Motley County in the postseason. Coach Flores is thrilled he was able to work under Coach Fryar.
"Coach Fryar did a great job last year. He always had the boys prepared and he really taught me a lot and that was invaluable for me.
Flores also has assistant coaching experience at Ira and played at Rule. You can watch my Facebook Live interview with Coach Flores and Coach Fryar here:
