Less than one month after accepting the position as Cuero ISD’s athletic director and head football coach, Jack Alvarez was forced into coaching remotely. With the coronavirus pandemic closing schools and canceling sports for the rest of the spring in mid-March, it was a waiting game for Alvarez and his new coaching staff, as they were unable to meet one-on-one with their athletes.

That all changed on May 22, when the University Interscholastic League (UIL) announced guidelines for summer workouts. Limited summer strength and conditioning started Monday, June 8, and Cuero was back on the field that very day.

“It is awesome, especially today with a little cool front coming in,” Alvarez said, referring to their third day on June 10. “It’s been a good day. I think the kids needed it. They were a little sore after two days with a lot of them being pretty inactive over the summer.”

Simply having the chance to now talk directly with kids is a huge step forward after missing out on most of the spring semester.
