Bosqueville's Wiginton Moves To Comfort

Comfort, an already successful Class 2A program with six consecutive playoff appearances, has a new football coach in Lee Wiginton, who came from Class A Bosqueville after leading that program to the state quarterfinals in 2003. Wiginton was 29-18 overall in four years at Bosqueville.

Comfort, meanwhile, made it to the state semifinals in 2003 before exiting. Paul Talbert resigned from the Bobcats to take a job in his hometown of Malakoff.

Bosqueville enjoyed new-found success under Wiginton. The Bulldogs made it to their first 11-man playoff experience in 2001, with last year's team taking it to the final eight. Quarterback Tyler Minyard set a Class A record for passing yards in a season along the way.

Elsewhere in Central Texas, Troy's Mike McMurtry announced his retirement at the end of the school year. McMurtry led Troy for 13 years and exits with a 59-83-1 ledger. Troy has usually been one of the smaller Class 3A programs in terms of numbers. The Trojans finished last year at 1-9, 0-5 in District 18-3A but will play in 2A the next two years.

Troy enjoyed success in Class 2A in 1998-99 as both teams compiled 9-1 marks. The 1998 team finished at 10-2 and won a District 26-2A title.
