Lubbock-Cooper is coming off a nice 45-20 win over Andrews last week and looks to build off the season opening victory. Head Coach Chip Darden’s squad is facing a tough 3 game stretch versus Lubbock area teams starting with Coronado High School on Friday night.
The Pirates will be facing the Mustangs for the 4th time in program history. LCP won the first meeting of the series 34-27 in a 2016 district game played at Lowrey Field. In 2017, the last district game between the two schools, Coronado defeated the Pirates 51-22 at Pirate Stadium. The 3rd meeting – a 43-42 LCP double overtime win – occurred at Lowrey Field in week 2 of the 2018 season. It was a game where Coronado looked poised to win until freshmen linebacker Kobie McKenzie forced and recovered a fumble and ran down to the goal line to set up the Pirates. In the second frame of overtime, Lubbock-Cooper scored a touchdown to pull the game to a 42-41 lead for CHS. LCP opted to go for two to win the game and Senior quarterback Brenden Mehl found Junior wide receiver Juwan Johnson in the back of the endzone for the conversion.
Coronado is in its 6th season under head coach Seth Parr. Parr has recorded a 40-21 record at Coronado since his move to the Hub City from Amarillo Caprock. As the head man of the Longhorns (2007-2013), Parr went 35-37 and is now 75-58 in 12 years as a head coach. The Mustangs went 10-3, 5-1 last season in district 2-5A DI sharing the district championship with Amarillo Caprock. It was the third straight season Coronado either shared or won the outright district championship. Since 2016, CHS has advanced to the third round of the playoffs each year, making it to the fourth round in 2017. The 2016 playoff appearance was the first in school history since the 2007 season.
