HOUSTON – Ronald Nunnery Jr. stood at the base of the large white painted "X" in the word Texans.

The Shadow Creek senior was back there just in case. Just like former Auburn player Chris Davis was in 2013 in the 78th Iron Bowl against Alabama.

Nunnery Jr. was awaiting San Antonio Wagner kicker Omar Guevara to put toe-to-ball. As the 36-yard attempt went end-over-end towards the end zone, Nunnery Jr., just like Davis did on November 30, 2013, caught it and took off.

"I had a feeling that he was going to miss it," Nunnery Jr. said.As the University of Houston verbal commit cut to his left and came out of the end zone the blocks developed in front of him.

First it was Sharks' linebacker Darrion Brown and defensive back Trey Palmer that laid the first clearing block of Wagner offensive lineman Jaylon Blackburn that really sprung Nunnery Jr. free.

Once past there, it was a footrace down the sideline.

"We were going for the tie and hopefully go into overtime and they made a big play," Wagner coach Charles Bruce told the Houston Chronicle. "Credit to them."

Standing on the sidelines watching as this play developed was Shadow Creek senior quarterback Jamarian George.

"Hey man it's not his first time," George said with a big smile and laugh. "He's the GOAT for that one."

As Nunnery Jr. crossed midfield, running in front of a roaring, rally-towel waving Shadow Creek fanbase and his teammates and coaches it became more real he could do it.

"I was sure hoping he was going to get there," Shadow Creek coach Brad Butler said.

Culture, culture, culture.

High school football coaches carry the torch for a school.

Hire the right one and your school can be a beacon of light for the community. The wrong one can make for long fall seasons, and well… unenthusiastic pep rallies.

Jobs are beginning to open in Greater Houston and here is what those respective schools are in need of.

JOB RANKINGS

No. 1 Hightower Hurricanes

Probably the best job currently open in Houston. Only drawback is that FBISD has so many schools, which stretches the resources. The Hurricanes have a winning tradition and athletes. Just look at their Wall of Fame, pretty impressive. Padriac McGinnis was 38-27 in six seasons. Previous coaches were Cy Ranch's Gene Johnson and Klein's Shane Hallmark. They are in a tough district, but that could get them postseason-ready. Another program that just needs a blue print – a serious scheme on and off the field. Organization and a SERIOUS offseason. Lots of kids in track, which is okay, but teaching a new scheme is paramount. Offense has to catch up quicker than defense.

No. 2 Aldine Davis Falcons

I like this program. James Showers is out at Davis after opening the school and going 26-27 in five years along with four playoff appearances. Davis has players and a big enrollment. This is a quick fix with the right coach. It's about a PROGRAM -- tying weight room to offseason conditioning to discipline and accountability. This is a good job. Needs an assistant with a PLAN from a power program that has won BIG. Kids believe in winners.
