Former Wildcats Football Coach, the legendary James Cameron, was enshrined into the Texas High School Coaches Association Hall of Honor at a ceremony Wednesday in Houston. Among those in attendance was Wildcats Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Greg Owens. Former Cameron assistant Joey Florence, who Coach Cameron correctly predicted would one day win the state championship, spoke on behalf of the late Coach Cameron. Former Wildcat Head Coaches Chuck King and his wife and Dwayne McMeans and his wife also attended. Coach Owens said people were also present from Kilgore and Rockwall where Cameron also coached.
State rings for this past school year were also presented. Former Wildcats Soccer Coach Andy Holt collected a ring for leading Frisco Wakeland to the state soccer championship. Coach Owens said Wildcats’ coaches got rings at the 2009 conference after winning the state football championship in 2008.
Coach Owens said this year’s THSCA conference was one of the best he’s ever attended. He said there were good speakers addressing a variety of topics including motivating kids.
