High school football is serious business here in Texas. It's almost as if the song should be sung:

The stars at night Friday Night Lights are big and bright (clap, clap, clap, clap) Deep in the heart of Texas.

Now, an interim coach has made headlines and history as the first female head coach in Texas history. Daisy Garcia has taken up the whistle in Runge, TX (pronounce Run-gee) a town of a little over 1000 people. It's sort of between San Antonio and Corpus Christi, for those of you who are geographically minded.

Garcia is no diversity hire, she's already been the varsity running backs and linebackers coach. She was also a successful coach for the Junior High team. She's also coached volleyball, basketball, and softball.

Garcia is also obviously not out for her own recognition either. She seriously downplayed the significance of her being head coach on her Twitter

She wants what's best for her athletes, but she's also grateful for the support:

With Garcia take any guff from these boys? Heck no! From The Victoria Advocate:

Garcia, who also coaches girls basketball and softball, made it clear that she wouldn’t tolerate any disrespect.

“You’ve got to be more stern,” she said. “You’ve to show them who’s the boss. And these guys have figured out pretty quick, ‘Hey, she doesn’t play.’ I’ll get in their faces just like the other coaches if I need to.”

Even if she coaches for just a day, she's made history, but I'd really love to see what she can do with an entire season under her belt. Let's Go Yellowjackets!
