Don Howard has officially turned in his letter of resignation as Wiregrass Ranch’s girls track and field coach, the coach said Wednesday afternoon.
“I’ve been thinking about stepping down each of the last four seasons,” Howard said. “It was just the right time for me to step down. Coaching the team and teaching AP dual enrollment classes was tough for me. I’ll continue to coach the distance girls (events) if the next coach wants me to.”
Howard, who just completed his fourth year as coach, led the Bulls to four Sunshine Athletic Conference titles and also four district crowns. Howard stated that he will continue to coach Wiregrass’ girls cross country team.

Football: Sunlake’s Burgos headed to Black Hills State

Sunlake RB/DB Eddie Burgos will play football for Black Hills State University in South Dakota, according to Coach Bill Browning.
Burgos took an extended amount of time to make his college choice, but Browning said the school in Spearfish, S.D. was ultimately the place he liked the best of the schools recruiting him, despite how far away it is from home.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound three-year starter was one of Pasco County’s most versatile players in 2012. On offense he posted 1013 rush yards, 152 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns. On defense he had four interceptions, one forced fumble, and three more TDs. All this while dealing with nagging injuries that at times prevented him from playing on offense, though he appeared in all 10 of Sunlake’s games.
Burgos also has experience playing wide receiver. Prior to moving to running back, he had 38 catches for 639 yards and seven TDs in his sophomore and junior seasons combined. He was recruited by Black Hills State as an athlete.
The Yellow Jackets are entering their second year as members of the Division II Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. They went 4-7 last season but won their final three games.

Maisel was named to honorable mention of the Tribune’s 2012 All Pasco County Football Team this past season.
