I always love visiting Miami as it has arguably one of the most appealing settings for a school and football field in all of Six-man.
The school is not the only new edition to Miami as they welcome new head coach, Clint Linman, who had historic run at McLean over the last three years, including a State Championship and an impressive 41-5 record.
As I visited with Coach Linman, he was very excited about the upcoming year. Coach Linman told me he has a great group of kids and they really want to turn the program around. He said it’s going to be a process as they are very young and will depend on several freshmen to take starting roles. Another challenge facing the Warriors is depth. Suited up on the field that day was a total of nine kids, which is one of the reasons Miami dropped to Division II Six-man after the last re-alignment by UIL.
Coach Linman told the boys that they must first do the little things consistently and the rest will come with time and hard work.
Miami will be competing in a district against Follett, Lefors, Hedley, and Darrouzett. I can see them being a strong contender for a district championship. Thank you to Coach Linman and Miami ISD for the hospitality and support for Texas 1A Fan.
