Coach Boles replaces Tom Dracos, who left Cumby to take an Assistant Athletic Director and Offensive Coordinator job at Cuero. Coach Dracos was coach at Cumby for the past 7 years. The Trojans finished last season at 8-4 and made it into the Area round in the playoffs.
In a letter to Cumby parents recently, Coach Boles said he was excited to come back home to the area.

Coach Boles said he hopes to enhance and build upon what has been started and to continue the tradition of excellence at Cumby.
