Mayor, don't take my comment in the wrong way but, it's impossible to keep everyone happy. I'm sure if he (Gonzie) would have gotten hired, you would be happy but, the next person would have said something negative about him. Just like "Bad" commented. So what is one to do? Hire them both? It can happen but, they won't. Sooooo, I guess for the time being we need to support the team regardless of who the coach is. Just saying.

Just read an article on one of the Corpus TV stations and this is what Joe Rios commented.




FALFURRIAS - It's official, Falfurrias Head Football Coach Joe Rios is saying goodbye to the Jersey's and hello to Hebbronville. We are the first to report this move.

Rios spent the last three seasons at the helm in Falfurrias compiling a record of 9-21, not terribly impressive unless you realize that Rios was the man who helped the Jerseys snap a 30+ game losing streak spanning 4-seasons.

"It's bittersweet, I am excited to go home to help that program become a winner, but sad to be leaving. They treated me well here, the school board and community were great and I am gonna miss them, but I am excited for this new opportunity in Hebbronville," said Rios.

This move will also be a homecoming for him as he grew up in Hebbronville telling me that getting this job, was a dream come true. He also credits his success to training under Refugio Head Coach Jason Herring, as Rios was a Bobcats assistant coach prior to taking in Falfurrias.

"What I learned in Refugio I brought here, I'm talking about living in the weight room and working hard in the offseason. That is why we were successful there and that's what I wanna bring to Hebbronville, I wanna bring everything that Coach Herring taught me," he said.

He will officially take over on April 1st, replacing Don Davis, who spent just one season with the Longhorns who finished the year 0-10. Rios was approved by the school board via a unanimous decision.

Good luck to Coach Rios,,,he will do a good job, but he needs every parent, athlete, coach, and community member to buy into his program. He sure turned the program around at FHS. Every AD has to think about having a great PR program with the kids, staff, administration and the community. I think he will do a good job. There are many die hard Longhorn Fans who will welcome a positive change. Coach Rios,,,look forward to seeing you work with UIL, AG, Band, and community members to start a positive change for the athletic department at HHS. Build on the successes that are already there,,,Again, Goodluck and do not listen to the nay sayers,,,

In my opinion hes a good coach I remember he started a freshman rb when he was in premont and that rb got offensive mvp of that district I was sure coach rios was going to hear from the fans and of course the parents but when they saw that rb play bigger than what he looked and was a speedster that whole year was fun for everyone coaches the community also hes good with the kids I believe he can turn our football program around as well as help with the other sports

Just getting tired of all the " HATERS" . NEG BS THAT IS SAID. These kids( football,basketball, baseball all sports boys and girls) need a positive role model.
There is no room in football for weakness and crying !!!! If mijito is not good enough to start well then he does not start. Parents stay the hell out of the field, practice should be cut off from parents.
Varsity football players, RIOS is old school. expect to pay dearly if you are not in shape when you show up for two a days. Get in shape, stay in the weight room and learn technique.

You,re 110% correct. Leave the coaching up to the coach!! Stands to reason why he got hired, right? You're also correct on hitting the weight room. Build some strength.
