We are a just over a month away from the start of the high school football season, and the Eastwood Troopers will be looking for their third coach in three seasons.  Head coach David Satcher abruptly resigned Thursday morning after one season in El Paso. Satcher cited family reasons for his departure.  Satcher will return to the Houston area and has accepted an assistant position at Jersey Village High School.

Satcher's resignation comes at the worst possible time for a program trying to get back to respectability.  Satcher inherited a team that had lost 25 straight games.  Satcher immediately changed the culture.  The Troopers started 2010 3-0 and were the talk of the town.  Once they got into district play reality set in and they finished the season 3-7.

3-7 might not look impressive on paper, but the improvements David Satcher made were monumental.  He showed right away he was head coach material.  Satcher may have parlayed any success at Eastwood into a bigger coaching job in the state, but he was an asset to Eastwood and El Paso high school football.
