Any high school football coach can tell you how difficult it is to balance family time with the demands of coaching in-season. These Texas high school football coaches share their experiences of attempting to navigate that difficult balance.

The field house and the practice field are basically 2nd homes to football coaches and their families during the season. Cedar Ridge High School head coach, Shawn Bell concurs, “I’m never home they kind of have to come to me”.

It’s a way of life for all coaching families. For example, Reagan High School head coach, Keith Carey picks up his son Luke from school before every practice. “He brings me to my mom”, said Luke Carey. His mom and Coach Carey’s wife is a teacher at Reagan High School.
