The Coronado Mustangs have spent the last two seasons as the lone area school in the largest classifications. In 2014 they will stay in the largest classifications, but it will be 6A and they will have some local friends.

Coronado joins Frenship and Monterey in 2-6A along with a couple of Amarillo schools. The one difference for the Mustangs is they didn't have a coach until about May 12. It was a bit of a time crunch for Coach Seth Parr to get his guys in place for the upcoming season but everyone is fired up now and ready to start the season.

“Teaching coaches, teaching players, I mean we had to hire eight new people in the summer,” Parr said, “So just teaching your system and your stuff is tough. It's a learning process for everybody, they're getting to know me, I'm getting to know them but overall I'm very pleased."

“It's been like a slow process because everything is so new to us but it's been good,” senior cornerback Rodrick Stewart said. “Everything's been going real good."

"The intensity is awesome here and, like always, he's brought something completely new to the table and I think we're handling pretty well with all of it," senior linebacker Colman Hendershot said.
