LSG Texas High School Football Coaches Show
Chris Doelle sits down with Coach Weldon Nelms in the newest episode of this groundbreaking series on Lone Star Gridiron. In the show, we celebrate the coaches that have made a different in the lives of people around them. This interview is special to Chris because he and Coach Nelms both lived in Wimberley during the time of their 2011 State Championship. Chris got to know and respect Coach Nelms during those years they shared the same small community.
Listen in as we discuss:
- This country boy from Plains, Texas has had quite a ride!
- His college football and coaching career at Western New Mexico
- A middle-of-the-night phone call that landed his first head coaching position
- Success at all levels of Texas high school football
- Coach Nelms' appreciation for this profession
- Influences in his career
- "the game of football will go away, but the game of life is real" - Weldon Nelms
- How being a difference-maker in a child's life is the most important aspect of this career
