The Riverside Rangers announced their new head football coach and athletic coordinator during a Thursday afternoon pep rally.
Tony Pallanez was introduced to students, faculty, and staff during an energetic pep rally at the school’s main gym. Pallanez previously worked as a defensive coordinator/outside linebackers coach at Clint High School.
“I am very humbled and excited to be a part of such a storied program,” Pallanez said. “I look forward to working with the Riverside community.”
Pallanez, a native of Alpine, Texas, earned his bachelor’s degree from Sul Ross State University. He began working as a coach and teacher in 2000 at Clint High School, which has been to the football playoffs nine times in the past decade and won two district titles.
His new job duties at YISD take effect January 19.
