Derek Maestas’ dream of becoming a head football coach is now a reality. The 1999 Robertson grad and former football player is now the head football coach at Albuquerque’s Highland High School, replacing Gary Sanchez.
Maestas is attempting to return the Hornets program back to the glory days of Bill Gentry and Judge Chavez and Mark Henry, who guided the program to a 6-0 state championship win over Clovis in 1989.
Excerpts of my interview with Maestas follow.
