EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) - It is the end of an era at Del Valle High School. KTSM 9 Sports has confirmed longtime head football coach and athletic coordinator, Jesse Perales, is expected to be named head football coach at Garland Naaman Forest High School, pending board approval on Tuesday. The move was first reported by Prep1USA.
Perales, a graduate from Bel Air High School, began coaching at Del Valle in 2001 as the team's defensive coordinator. He took over as head coach in 2003. Perales compiled a record of 125-50 with seven district titles, 10 bi-district championships, and one area championship.
