Football is a family affair

The Fellows family isn’t the only one with a father-son combo in the football program. As the Fightin’ Bucks prepare for their first game against Tornillo on Friday, Jerry Dominguez is once again coaching his son Jacob who, like quarterback Aaron Fellows, is also a senior. This time, the former Charlotte, Texas head coach begins his first stint as the Alpine defensive coordinator.

“It’s a dream come true actually,” said Dominguez, who is implementing a new defense this season. “A lot of programs are families. You build off of one another. Families will fight, but at the same time, families will have each other’s backs.”
