Coach Fernandez does a good job but like any other coach, it takes a great group of kids to make things possible. I was impressed with this group the first time I came into contact with them. Winning is important to them. They are actually willing to do the work that makes champions. They are also close knit as a team. If not they would have folded a long time ago.

James Barron loves to use the term legendary when he talks about coaches. Ben Gomez is introduced as “Legendary Ben Gomez” at home games and for some reason at Santa Fe High. For me when I think of a legendary coach in New Mexico I think of Ralf Tasker at Hobbs (12 State Championships) Jim Hulsman at Albuquerque high (7 state championships) Eric Rounhouse at Clovis (10 state championships). Joey Fernandez can be added to that list he has he has won 10 state championships between football and track and has won 170+ Football games.
