ANDERSON, Texas -- The architect of the high school football program at Anderson-Shiro has unexpectedly resigned his post. Tuesday Dwayne Ross turned in his letter of resignation.

Almost two weeks ago Coach Ross was told by Anderson-Shiro ISD Superintendent Sara Goolsby that his contract would not be renewed.

Ross was hired at Anderson-Shiro in 2009. That season the Owls fielded only a junior high football team. In 2010 & 2011 the Owls competed on the junior varsity level.

The Owls made the jump into varsity play in 2012 and took their lumps with a 1 -9 record.

This past season Ross' Owls made the playoffs in just their second season of varsity competition. Anderson-Shiro started off the year 3-0 and then the injuries started to mount up. The Owls starting line-up in their playoff game against Crawford was missing 15 starters that took the field in the 2013 season opener against Somerville.

Anderson-Shiro wrapped up their second year of varsity competition with a 5 & 5 record.

Thursday afternoon Coach Ross said, "Whoever gets this job will have a good group of kids returning. I think we lose just five seniors."

Anderson-Shiro does not have a home football field. They are set to open their new athletic complex in August 2014 which will also benefit the Owls' new head football coach.
