    Crafty, I think Harlingen would be successful with or without Gomez... They've got the kind of tradition that attracts football players and a winning mentality... That being said, I think better Offensive coaching would do them a lot of good..

    Coach Gomez belongs in top 5 for sure..... heck even top three. We don’t know for sure that the Cards win as much with the solid playoff runs without Gomez. Yes we would still have plenty of wins but would we have the three undefeated seasons, 5 straight third round appearances which was a record for valley football, not sure if a program has since matched it, a fourth round appearance, not to mention strong showings in third round defeats. I have seen plenty of third round blowouts. 2017 was his first season, in what 10 yrs that his team didn’t claim a part of the DC. If that doesn’t make him at least a top 5 coach, wow. Everyone has their own opinion. The one knock on him and EVERY coach has a downside, has been his hiring practices.

    I would definitely not put Littleton on the list. In a “top coach debate,” playoff success matters. With all the talent they have had, they should be number one regular season wins and playoff victories.

    THIS!!! Congratulations, you have won the 956 Sports POST OF THE YEAR!!!!! Bradly Stephens, Trevor and Campbell Speights, DJ Johnson, Jonathon Sanchez, Matthew Kaufman, I'm sure I'm missing a few big time, big name players and yet, next to NO PLAYOFF SUCCESS!!!! Kaufman had some, but once he was gone so were their playoff wins...

    Patrick Granchelli, Sharp, Kelechi, . Not all fault will lay on HC. I have followed Stangs for some years and have noticed teams like Harlingen and SB are hungrier than Memorial.

    Agree 100%, valley folks have clamored for better coaches and bill Littleton had the big game expirience having coachING duties at cuero. I was a Littleton supporter for some time but there's no reason that a coach with probably some of the best talent to come out of the valley hasn't had as many playoff wins as other valley squads.

    I agree. The problem with Gomez is he hires inexperienced coaches for assistants which has basically been his own decline. Get a good OC and Harlingen will roll.
