Sonora Names Ralls AD, Head Football Coach as New Leader
SONORA, TX -- The Sonora Broncos have found their new coach, pending board approval and will look to officially hire the Lubbock area coach on Friday at a school board meeting.
The Broncos will now be led by former Ralls Athletic Director and head football coach Kevin Sherrill.
In two years at Ralls, a Class 2A school 30 miles northeast of Lubbock, Sherrill revived a dormant team who had missed the playoffs in four consecutive years, including a 3-7 season in Sherrill's first year at the post.
The Jack Rabbits finished 2018 with a 9-2 record and the program's first district championship in 11 years after being picked to finish fifth by Dave Campbell's Texas Football.
Sherrill is an offensive-minded coach, as he served as offensive coordinator at Shallowater and Eastland prior to his stint at Ralls. Sonora has been known in recent years for their high-scoring offense.
Prior to his stops at Eastland and Shallowater, he served as the head coach at Anton in 2007 and O'Donnell in 2008.
He takes over after Jeff Cordell announced his resignation on April 10 following two years at the helm. Sherrill is the seventh coach in 12 years at Sonora and inherits a program with 10 straight playoff berths and six district championships in that time.
Sonora finished 5-6 last year after rallying for three consecutive wins to clinch a playoff berth.
