“From my own standpoint, I am so excited about this step for Weatherford,” he said. “Coach Nelms’ attitude coming in here is just great. He has spoken to our kids and conveyed to them that it’s not just him, and that there is no magic potion to get where we want to be.
“He told the kids it’s “we,” going forward.
“This is a good move for Weatherford ISD, and for Weatherford, TX.”
Nelms officially began his Weatherford tenure earlier this week and , according to Scoggin, has ‘hit the ground running’ to prepare for the development of the football program now under his tutelage.
The first regular-season kickoff in that late-August night for 2013 is yet several months away. And while being a span the new coach will certainly savor in preparation, one that also creates growing anticipation, WISD’s Exec AD included.
“A guy like Weldon, who has experienced a good deal of success — they certainly want to continue that success,” Scoggin said. “He has that desire for Weatherford. He’s not worried about who we’re up against, nor the schedule. That is the mind set he will endeavor to instill in our kids.
And we have kids here that can win.”
