Aledo football has flourished under the leadership of Head Coach Tim Buchanan and Athletic Director Steve Wood, who have collectively guided the Bearcats to a record-tying eight state championships.


It's been a long and winding road for Duke Dalton, but Mildred's new football coach already feels right at home.

Dalton's a man who likes to put down roots, and he's looking forward to not only digging his feet deep into the North Central Texas dirt, but building something special at Mildred.

Corsicana, Texas is an extremely historic city. The most significant dates in our history include 1894 when the first commercial oil well west of the Mississippi was drilled here spawning the need to originate the Derrick Days celebration, 1895 when Lyman T. Davis came up with the recipe for Wolf Brand Chili which brought about the invention of Tums, 1896 when the first candied fruit was baked into the Original Deluxe Fruitcake and 1941 when the Flores family came up with orange dip (or equally important that they originated the Wednesday night enchilada special).

Now, we can add to that august list, 2019 for the hiring of Hal Wasson as the head football coach of the Corsicana Tigers.


It has been a long road for Hal Wasson, who has won just about every honor a high school football coach can achieve on and off the field in more than three decades of winning titles, state championships and respect and praise from his players and his peers.

But as Wasson stood in the sunshine Monday in the end zone of Tiger Stadium as CISD Superintendent Diane Frost introduced him as Corsicana's new head football coach one thing was certain.

Wasson knows when to pull over.

Wasson will be at Tiger Stadium at 4:30 p.m. today and introduced as the new head coach of the Tigers. He was recommended to the school board last week and will be voted in as Corsicana's new head football coach when the board meets this afternoon.
