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.

Each year, the NCAA is committed to leaving a legacy in the Men’s and Women’s Final Four host cities to foster goodwill and sportsmanship. The Men’s Final Four Legacy Project presented by Unilever will select a community facility in Harris County and provide renovations in 2023. This will be the first time a Local Organizing Committee offers an open call for applications in order to select a project. Unilever, the Official Personal Care Partner of the NCAA, is in its twelfth year as an NCAA Corporate Partner and has been the presenting partner of the Legacy Project since 2018.

“One of the key roles that the Houston Local Organizing Committee plays is working with the NCAA to ensure that the impact of having an event like the Men’s Final Four in our city is felt long beyond the tournament’s conclusion. The Men’s Final Four Legacy Project presented by Unilever is one example of a community-focused project that will make a difference in our community for years to come,” says Rachel Quan, HLOC vice president of external operations.

The Legacy Project has a long history in the city of Houston. In 2011, the NCAA and HLOC worked to restore the basketball court and facilities at the MD Anderson Family YMCA. The renovation helped see a drastic increase in membership and enhanced the center’s ability to continue to reach neighborhood youth. In 2016, the Morefield Boys and Girls Club in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Houston received a refurbished basketball court thanks to the NCAA’s Legacy Project.

Working alongside the HLOC, the NCAA and corporate partner, Unilever, we will once again leave behind a legacy in the city by choosing and renovating another community facility in 2023.Applications are open to the public online through midnight on Monday, May 20, 2022.

To qualify, applicants must be located in Harris County. Applications awarded the highest score by community relations evaluators will earn the chance for the HLOC and NCAA to do a site visit to consider the project. A winner will be announced in the summer/fall of 2022 and unveiled in spring 2023, prior to the Men’s Final Four in April.
