PEEVEY NAMED PHILLIPS COACH OF THE YEAR
March 1 (Port Arthur) – AD/Head Football Coach Eric Peevey was named the Bum Phillips Coach of the Year. The ceremony took place at the Museum of the Gulf Coast in Port Arthur with Wade Phillips in attendance to present the ring. Peevey went 11-3 in his first year with Bears, making it to the fourth round of the playoffs for the second time in the school’s history. Peevey took over the program last year after leaving West Brook. He managed to turn around the program in his first year, winning 10 more games than the team did in 2020. Peevey took time to thank his coaching staff and the administration. “When your bosses are your best friends, it makes things really easy,” he said. “I am a firm believer that if I am the smartest guy in the room, I am in the wrong room. I am not that bright of a guy. The first thing I made sure to do was to hire unbelievable coordinators.” Peevey said he was always pulled towards Bum Phillips because of the way he cared for his players. “He was different,” Peevey said. “I have always been enamored by and infatuated with the way he acted and the way he coached… One thing about us here in Southeast Texas is that we try to put up a hard front. We try to act like we are tough and we are… One thing we do is we love hard. One thing you could see about Coach Phillips is that he loved his players and that is the strongest point with me as a coach.” LCM finished 4-1 in district play, splitting the title with Vidor. “This area is special to us,” Wade Phillips said. “This award is special to us. It is an honor to present the award on behalf of my dad and our family. This guy won 10 more games than the previous year. I have never heard of that. I have known some good ones, but I haven’t heard of a year like that. It was their first district title since 1997. They had one playoff win since 1997, but had three this year. What a tremendous year.” Peevey is the third coach to win the award along with Silsbee’s Randy Smith in 2020 and Nederland’s Monte Barrow last year. — Written by Chris Moore, special to The Orange Leader.
Peevey is pictured above (center) with seven time State Champion Coach Todd Dodge (left) and former NFL Head Coach, and son of Bum Phillips, Wade Phillips (right). Dodge was inducted into The Museum of the Gulf Coast Hall of Fame at the ceremony.

BEARS NAMED MOST-IMPROVED FOOTBALL TEAM IN TEXAS
January 21 – AD/Head Coach Eric Peevey and the Battlin’ Bear football program received a huge recognition in a recent article in Dave Campbell’s Texas Football. Below is part of that article …
“Very few Texas high school football teams have no room for improvement, at least when it comes to the win column. In the COVID-strangled 2020 season, just two UIL teams won the maximum number of games — 4A Division I state champion Argyle (16-0) and 1A Division I state champion Sterling City (15-0). For the remainder of the 1,200-plus squads across the state, there was room to grow their most important number: victories. Of course, progress doesn't come easy, especially in the rough-and-tumble world of TXHSFB. Of the 1,222 UIL Texas high school football teams that played each of the last two seasons, 419 won fewer games in 2021 than in 2020, while another 165 won the same number of contests. That leaves 638 teams that improved their record in 2021 — some buoyed at least in part by far fewer canceled games this season. But of those teams on the upswing, a handful made a particularly large leap.
Reeling from a 1-7 season in 2020 and just one winning season in its last 11 campaigns, Little Cypress-Mauriceville turned to new coach Eric Peevey, who just a few years prior took fellow Golden Triangle squad Beaumont West Brook to the 6A Division II state title game. The impact was immediate, especially on the offensive side, where went from fewer than 9 points per game in 2020 to more than 30 per contest in 2021. The result: an 11-3 season (the most at LC-M since 1997), a regional final berth and the title of most-improved team in Texas.”
