“I first thought about hosting a clinic was during my first year coaching in Mesquite. Coach Taylor at Poteet High School put on a one-day clinic at the school, and we were one of the presenters. I had to put all of the video together for the Head Coach (Gary Johnson) and Defensive Coordinator (Bobby Estes) and as a young coach it helped me learn more of what they were talking about,” said Como-Pickton head football coach and athletic director Paul Tullis. “As an older coach now, I love going to clinics and hearing what other people are thinking to try and make our program better.”
