With a recent win over Sulpher Springs, EHS head football coach Sam Harrell notched his 200th career win as a coach. Harrell was present with the game ball for this milestone by his long-time assistant coaches Paul Willingham and Steve Morrow. "It was a very special win for me, because I was able to get it with such a great group of kids and coaches," Harrell said in the post-game radio interview on 106.9 The Ranch. "Coach Steve Morrow has been with me for every one of those wins, and Paul Willingham was with us for all of the wins here at Ennis. In fact, most of those wins have come here at Ennis."
