BGC Preview 2021: MacArthur Brahmas

Head coach Hirst looking for success in second year of spread offense

KSAT 12's final Big Game Coverage visit before the season begins is at MacArthur High School, where the Brahmas are looking for their first victory under head coach Kevin Hirst after going winless in 2020.

SAN ANTONIO – Kevin Hirst’s first season leading the MacArthur football team onto the field was difficult, but he’s optimistic about 2021.

The Brahmas finished last year with an 0-9 overall record and the final margins of each game were fairly lopsided save for a 27-21 defeat against LEE. This year, Hirst hopes that year two of running the spread offense will be different. Running back Jonah Dunlap was a bright spot with 647 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns on the ground. He could also see time at quarterback alongside returning QB Jaxon Deason.

MacArthur kicks off their season Saturday against Marshall at Farris Stadium at 7 p.m.
