2014 Lone Star Gridiron
Class 3A Coach of the Year

2014 Lone Star Gridiron Texas High School Football Coach of the Year AwardWinner: Rick Rhoades (Cameron Yoe)

Head Coach Rick Rhoades and his team finished the 2014 season with a record of 12-4. Rhoades also led his team to their third consecutive state championship. The championship win was the fourth championship game appearance since Rhoades become head coach in 2009. Coach Rhoades is currently the third winningest coach in Cameron Yoe history with a 68-15 record and if his team wins 9 games in 2015, he will take over the #1 spot on the team. This is something that could be very likely as since taking over at head coach, the Yoemen have not had a losing season. Rhoades holds an all-time coaching record of 110-36 after coaching at New Braunfels from 2000-2004. Coach Rhoades also won the 2010 Lone Star Gridiron Class 2A Coach of the Year award.
