TREY RICHEY is the only person to win a six-man football state championship as both a player and a coach. He was the star running back and safety at Jayton HS where the Jaybirds went undefeated and won back-to-back state six-man football championships in 1984 and 1985. In the 1985 title game, Richey rushed for a state championship game record of 461 yards and eight touchdowns. After one year at Texas Tech, he transferred to McMurry, where he was a standout defensive back. He had 13 career interceptions at McMurry, including a school-record three in one game. Richey then went into coaching and has spent his career coaching at Borden County. He won one state championship as an assistant coach and then led the Coyotes to four more six-man state championships as the head coach.
