Going into last season Tim House patiently was waiting his turn as he backed up 2,000 yard rusher Terry Longbons. This would soon change as Longbons was hampered by injuries. When given the call, House played big, averaging over eleven yards a carry. Next season, with the graduation of many of this years starters on both sides of the bal, Tim will be asked to carry much of the offensive load as the Coyotes play their inaugural 5A season.
