Stamford's Casey named 81st annual Oil Bowl coach
WICHITA FALLS, Texas —
Although the start of high school football is still months away, Stamford's Ronnie Casey will be back on the sidelines a bit earlier this summer.
The Bulldog's head coach was named the west team coach for the 81st annual Oil Bowl – and all-star football game put on by the Maskat Shriners to benefit the Shriners Children's Hospital in Galveston.
Casey will join Vernon Lion’s coach Matt Hoover on the sidelines as leaders of the west team. The game brings student-athletes from around west Texas together.
It’s a big deal for Casey who also will use this opportunity as a learning experience.
“I'm very humbled to even have the opportunity and being selected to do this is a great honor,” Casey told KAUZ-TV in Wichita Falls. “I look forward to working with other coaches that are not in our area and it's going to be neat to be able to work against some of these other guys that we've played against. We've come up here several times and every time we've come up here I've been more impressed each time."
The 81st annual Oil Bowl will be played on June 16th at Wichita Falls’ Memorial Stadium.
