The coaching community lost a good one today. Tommy Watkins died early this morning.

Watkins coached the Iowa Park Hawks to state championships in 1969 and 1970. 

City View principal Daryl Frazier served on Watkins’ coaching staff at Iowa Park.  

“I think Tommy’s record in his first stint at Iowa Park was 129-9-1, which is almost unheard of in the coaching profession,” said Frazier.  “Tommy was a great man and there are a lot of athletes in the state of Texas that are successful because of the things he taught them about being men and work.”
