Coach Gary Gaines Memories

Coach Gary Gaines is nothing less than legendary. From playing quarterback at Angelo State University to coaching high school and college football in Denver City, San Angelo, Abilene, Amarillo, Petersburg, Lubbock, Fort Stockton, Monahans, and of course Odessa Permian, his footprints are all over West Texas. Coach Gaines’ career was so much more than an occupation, it was a calling.

My office is compiling memories of Coach Gaines to commemorate his incredible impact across Texas. If you have stories to share, please upload them here:
