It is getting bad when Bonham School Board members try to intimidate coaches to get their kids playing time just because they are board members.

Football is more important. The new head coach makes $79,000 and is AD. He teaches no classes, doesn't have to mow or mark the fields. What does he do during the day? They have a custodian to take care of the laundry, etc. If he was being paid by the victory, he would owe the school money.
Teachers have not had a raise in years. More and more is expected of them. New Supt. is making $130,000 and his asst. in the $90,000 (a new position but no raises for the teachers. Bonham will never focus on educaiton.

What's wrong with Bonham football lately? Do we just not have any good players or are the boys just not wanting to play? Bonham used to be known for having good football teams and seems like we hardly ever go to the playoffs anymore.

Bonham sucks anyway who cares who plays...Put the janitos and female teachers out there, then maybe they would have a chance at winning..

Former Warrior, yes, there are a few players on the team that don't have the heart it takes to be a true Warrior but I know for a fact that there are MANY on that Varsity team that does! After each loss, I read fb posts between the boys, lifting each other up, encouraging each other, praising the ones that stepped up! They traveled to south Dallas to play a team whose line averaged players well over 6ft & weighing in around 275-300lbs. The Warriors stepped onto that field with a losing record & a good part of their starters on the sideline injured. They showed heart, determination & want! They fought hard and brought home a win! Now, tell me they that are just kids that don't want to do anything constructive!

Thank you all for being so supportive of these boys! BTW-you may want to educate yourselves with a few details about our new AD, how much time he had to prepare & get to know a group boys & new coaching staff and what his MANY duties are. You may want to walk in these boys shoes for just a day & see how hard they work & how they still find time to keep their studies up. And more importantly, see how they drag themselves out of bed every morning to face a community as negative as you have shown it to be!

Just wait on or two years, we'll have another new coaching staff to get to know. It's a revolving door lately.

I heard the new AD/HC didn't even buy a home here, just renting. Probably not planning on staying long.
who cares

Who cares about how many games they win. That is what is wrong with the BISD. No one cares about academics. We pay new supt. 130,000 a year, new secretary,$50,000 a year (newly created position), Director operations (90,000) a year-new position, new head coach $80,000 a year-Ten thousand more than Trompler and coach doesn't teach any classes or even mow or take care of the field. Mrs. Trompler, Asst. Supt/Director of Hr and Curriculum recently got a $11,000 raise that the board and supt. slid by without anyone knowing it. The aides, teachers, cafeteria workers, custodians and all the others who really run the school don't get anything. Someting is rotten in this situation.
Cruse, two years ago, cut 20 positions because we were broke and now we are giving all these raises for new positions.
I see why people voted against the bond. We also have 4.7 million dollars in savings (fund balance). We are paying too high of taxes if they are saving that much.
We need a change in school board who will do what is right and don't give new supt. the right to spend as he sees.

It's not the AD's fault. He's the best thing that has happened to Bonham Athletics in a while. Not to mention, the fact that the school's focus is on his team is not his decision. He is enforcing grade rules and making some of his own so the students focus on their work. Not just for the football team, but for everyone. I know because I'm not a football player and I have witnessed people in my position doing extra workouts for low grades.

Coach bounds Is a great man he does so much for us and allot of it goes in recognized. You uneducated bonham raised ignorant rednecks need to get all of your facts straight before you go talking about this man who is like family to me and 60 other men. How much he makes is none of anyone's business anyway. So please everyone grow up and realize that he has a family and a team that he cares very much for and his team and family Care very much for him.
Your's truly ;)

Wow. How funny when someone calls others "uneducated", "ignorant", etc., yet they think the phrase "a lot" is actually one word spelled "allot". I think he was trying to say unrecognized, but somehow ended up with "in recognized".

Need to work on it some. Keep up the hard work and hang in there!

Coach bounds strictly enforces grade rules if you make lower than a 75 you have mandatory tutoring until that grade is raised. 69 or lower you run every day and attend tutoring I think he cares a little guys so get it right

People need to realize that these coaches are trying as hard as they can. They do so much everyday for these kids that none of you could ever realize. For some kids, they even act as a parental figure, but all of you are to focused on how much he gets paid. Get a clue. Please
And none of you have the right to criticize anyone on this discussion because that is exactly what it is, a discussion. Not a tool to target people because of simple spelling mistakes.
