Story by Editor-In-Chief Laura Boyd
As a new spring season begins, new coaches, as well as players, bring an opportunity for growth to the McKinney Boyd football team. New head coach and athletic coordinator, Joe McBride, has brought many new faces to the coaching staff already including Steve Fex, the defensive coordinator from Colleyville Heritage High School in Flower Mound, Tex, and his son followed.
Wide receiver and junior Jake Fex followed his dad here from Colleyville Heritage High School and has shown himself to be a beneficial asset to the team in a short amount of time.
Since the beginning of his high school football career, Fex has accumulated quite an impressive resume. He was a second-team all-district selection as a sophomore free safety, sealed a win against the McKinney High Lions in district, and was a starter in the 2017 quarterfinals against Duncanville.
Entering the second semester of his junior year, Fex has constantly transferred schools to stay ahead of the competition, he stated in a previous interview. He has continuously followed his dad to schools and received extra training from a handful of coaches. From Coppell High School to McKinney Boyd, Fex plans to remain a Bronco throughout the remainder of his high school career.
“I like to go to school where [Coach Fex] [is]… [He] has been coaching with McBride for a long time,” Fex said.
As his senior year rings closer and the countdown begins for the start of a new season, Fex has already begun to think about his future. With the amount of work, effort and time he has put in to becoming a star player, he plans on continuing his career through college football.
“I definitely plan on playing college football,” Fex said.
He has already attracted the attention from many coaches from different colleges including SMU and the University of Iowa. They are keeping a close eye on Fex in the hope he chooses to play for their university.
