Atascocita has been a top dog on the high school basketball landscape since David Martinez took over as head coach in 2012. However, this year, Martinez may have done his best coaching job yet. In the past, he’s taken the Eagles to the state tournament with big time prospects like Fabian White and Carson Edwards. This year’s squad didn’t have the huge names, but they did have a complete “team”. Atascocita went 34-7 on the season and played the nations top team, Duncanville, as tough as anyone this season before losing in the state semifinal. Coach Martinez got the most out of his Eagles and for that, he’s our Coach of the Year.
