Estrella Foothills has found their new head football coach. They made the hire last week and through my sources they should be announcing the name of the head coach this week, possibly as early as today.
Estrella Foothills as fallen on hard times recently playing in the 4A division. Last year they were 1-9, defeating La Joya HS 26-19 for their lone win of the season. In 2021 they also went 1-9 after having a .500 season in 2020 going 4-4 and going 4-6 in 2019. You have to go back to 2018 where they had their last winning season at 6-4 where they made the playoffs for the only time in 4A losing to Saguaro 49-0 in the 1st Round.
However, Estrella Foothills was a strong state contender in 3A before making the jump to 4A EFH had a lot of success when they were in AIA Division 3 when they went 10-2 in 2015 getting to the 2nd round of the playoffs which was their last season in 3A.
Whoever has been named head coach will for sure have their work cut out for them in Division 4A but as they say “things can only get better”!
