A new era of athletics has begun at Lake View High School. Hector Guevara has been named the Lake View Chiefs new Campus Athletics Coordinator/Head Football Coach to succeed Doug Kuhlmann who recently resigned to accept a position in the Austin area.
Guevara comes to SAISD from Bovina ISD located 90 miles southwest of Amarillo. Guevara has been on the Bovina High School campus since 1998, most recently serving as the school’s athletic coordinator and head football coach since 2006. During Guevara’s time as head football coach, Bovina has been a perennial playoff team, advancing to the post-season in 7 of the past 11 years. Twice, he’s taken Bovina to the 3rd round of the playoffs – in 2010 and 2011. Last season, Guevara coached the Bovina Mustangs to a 9-2 overall record. This season, Bovina was ranked in the top 20 in their classification by several pre-season publications.
SAISD Executive Director of Athletics Brent McCallie is looking forward to what Guevara will bring to the Lake View football program and the community. "I have watched Coach Guevara’s teams play for the past 9 years," said McCallie. "They are always well prepared, played extremely hard, and very respectful. Coach Guevara always conducts himself in a very professional way. He strongly believes in the total program. He wants to get deeply involved in the Lake View community."
With pre-season workouts slated to begin on August 7th for the Chiefs, Guevara will soon hit the ground running. Lake View opens their season September 1st at San Angelo Stadium against Andrews High School.
