    Almost a 90% winning record while at HP. Pretty impressive. Great job. I still think his greatest win at HP was his first game against Garland.

    @really – Interesting you think that was the greatest win. It had nothing to do with coaching but rather luck. The Garland punter caught a low snap by putting his knee to the ground rendering him down around their 25 yardline. Then Coach Allen called the same play 3 times in a row, a fade to the corner that finally hit.
    I would have said that Stephenville State semi-final game with Stafford vs Jevon Snead or the first game that playoff year with Stafford vs Texarkana and Ryan Mallet.

    I agree with @really. The Garland game is the most memorable in my mind since it was his first game and winning in the last second (yes, after the Garland punter screwed up) against a 5A team that never lost again that season. Those other games @Interesting Thought mentioned were also phenomenal games, but if you discount the Garland because it wasn’t “coaching” I think you can discount every Stafford win because who wouldn’t have won with the ridiculous caliber of talent on those teams.
