The win was emotional for Trinity Christian Head Coach Dr. Kevin Spiller, who previously coached at Jayton, O’Donnell and Seagraves.

Trinity Christian Football Coach Dr. Kevin Spiller got back into coaching thanks to wise word from his father. He's previously coached at O'Donnell, Jayton & Seagraves. Today when Trinity Christian beat "his Goliath" Lubbock Christian, Spiller was emotional shedding tears on the field. He then let his Lion team know why he was so emotional. I talked to him after he spoke to his team. Congrats to Coach Spiller and Trinity Christian
