As this year comes to an end, and next year begins, Chaparral High School (CHS) is expecting a winning football season.
For a new beginning and a new football season, there will be the new defense coach, Gilbert Rojas. A Physical Education (P.E.) coach, Rojas has been working for Gadsden Independent School District (GISD) for 22 years. Not only is he a P.E. coach for CHS, he is also the head coach for Lobo Baseball for the last three years.
In his high school years, Rojas became used to winning in baseball and basketball at Riverside High School, and he hopes to improve the attitude to winning more. His goals for the next season are to, bring in his football knowledge to the Lobo athletes and help produce a winning season, “that’s what every coach wants,” said Rojas.
Rojas believes that by getting together with the other football coaches and coming up with different ideas he will be prepared to coach a winning team. Another one of his plans for the next football season is to make adjustments with his athletes to learn each one of them. “I will be strict and rough with the players, but only to a point. Everybody learns with a different style,” said Rojas, “I hope to be good help to the team and stay as long as they want me.”
