For starters, I’d just like to say I think the Galveston Independent School District board of trustees and athletic director Walter Fortune made a superb hire to fill Ball High’s head football coach vacancy.

As an assistant on the football staff of North Shore High School for the past five years, the Tors’ new hire Sheldon Bennight has been a part of three state championship teams, so he knows what it takes to make an elite program. And after meeting with him last week, he comes across as a strong leader who will demand the best out of his student-athletes.
