Down I-10 East outside of Houston sits Baytown, Texas, which could be considered the cradle of 7-on-7 football for the State of Texas.
It's home to Baytown Lee, where coach Dick Olin installed a dynamic pass-happy offense and launched the 7-on-7 summer league concept. Quarterbacks flocked to play for Olin back in the day as the Ganders were H-Town powers.
Goose Creek Consolidated ISD is also home to Baytown Sterling and Goose Creek Memorial High School, which have enjoyed some recent success in sports ranging from volleyball, baseball, softball, soccer and water polo. Yes, water polo.
The community is hungry to return to the glory days and athletic director Dr. Bernie Mulvaney is bringing back a winning culture. Hired in 2013, Mulvaney has made some critical hires that are starting to pay dividends.
VYPE caught up with Mulvaney to talk about his path to Baytown.
