It’s a new era of football at Bel Air High School. The Ysleta Independent School District naming former Parkland offensive coordinator, Eric Scogin, as the Highlanders next head football coach.
As #KTSM9Sports reported Tuesday, Eric Scogin introduced as Bel Air head football coach. I spoke with Scogin this morning. He told me he plans to rebuild the Highlanders football program the right way, both in the classroom and on the field. #txhsfb @BelAir_Cheer pic.twitter.com/zm7Glwj0Hb— Andy Morgan (@AndyMorganTV) December 19, 2018
Scogin has 23 years of coaching experience. He spent the past three years directing one of Texas’ high-powered offenses at Parkland High School, where the Matadors have won back-to-back-to-back Bi-District championships.
Scogin takes over a Bel Air program that went winless in 2018.
“Win or lose, they’re here. They are behind you. They are supportive of you,” said Scogin. “That’s one of many things that drew me to this position, the love and support of the community for Bel Air High School.”
The style of play Scogin plans to bring to Bel Air will be similar to the one he had at Parkland. Up-tempo and high-energy will be the name of the game.
“We are going to be the best in Texas. We are going to do things right and we are going to be elite,” said Scogin. “We are going to work hard, take advantage of everyday we have in the classroom, on the field, and in the weight room.”
With Scogin in the driver’s seat, Bel Air will look to have their first winning season since 2015.
