I'm a coach's wife, telling a story the best I know how. It's important and I want to get it right! Jump on the train quick for the Temple Wildcats are gathering steam! Their destination is unknown but their desire is for greatness. Prayerfully join us as God unfolds a new chapter. They've all been good but I won't be surprised if He's saved the best for last!

History Lesson!


Coach and I go way back! Eighth grade, to be exact. He loved playing football and I cheered.   Here he is back in the day. I know, he looks a little different but I promise  it’s him. I was there.


Many things have changed through the years but that simple truth remains. He loves football and all the relationships and lessons that go with it… and I still love cheering him and ‘his team’ on!


Here is  the 5 inch button pin I bought at the end of the 1971 season. It was an unforgettable season for everyone involved. Coach still talks about it.  In fact, after all these years these guys are getting back together again. I borrowed the following from their Facebook page:

Here are a few programs I found last week while preparing to wish a very special man ‘happy birthday’!


Coach Don Todd, has played a valuable role in Coach Spradlin’s life. From the eighth grade until present, Coach Todd has inspired and mentored. He has been apart of every milestone of our life. He is the reason Coach Spradlin loves to coach. We are honored to know, respect and know such a man. He is a man who has made a big difference! He has touched thousands of  lives'.

Happy Birthday, to a great man.  We love you! Click here to read more.
