Randy Allen is glad to be back on the sidelines

June 13th, 2018 - Former Cooper head coach Randy Allen was one of the other speakers down in San Angelo this afternoon.

If you remember, Allen retired as a head coach back in March after winning his second straight state title at Highland Park in 2017, and then decided to return to the sidelines in April.

It's been an rollercoaster of an offseason for the coach with the second most wins of any active coach in the state, but he's glad to be leading the Scots into the 2018 season. 

"I missed the players, I missed the coaches, I just realized my purpose, my calling, what I've spent my life doing was investing in young people and trying to make a difference in their life," Randy Allen said. "It was a faith decision, and I didn't have any peace about my decision to retire so I changed my mind and asked to get my job back, and I'm very happy to be back coaching the Scots."

The 2018 season will be his 20th at Highland park and his 38th overall. He is the number 4 in wins all-time in Texas.
