Floresville High School head football and athletic director John Baker has been placed on leave following his June 17 arrest. Baker, 49, was charged with driving while intoxicated.

Baker's contract was the subject of an agenda item at a June 21 special meeting of the Floresville Independent School District board of trustees. The board voted to authorize "the superintendent and legal counsel to proceed as discussed in closed session."

Teachers, coaches and all school employees are subject to background checks. They must maintain a clean criminal record. In the end it will depend on the level of the charges and the final disposition. Coach Baker is not a perfect ... More ›

I'm confused, was this dude engaged in school related business?? I don't think being stupid enough to drive while intoxicated precludes you from coaching football. Have you ever heard those apes yelling at the kids?? Apparently ... More ›

Don't want to get into anyone's personal affairs. Just want to see some new coaches at high school. Wouldn't wish what happened to coach baker or what he is going thru on anyone. Just saying time for a new head coach and AD.

T Bone your dreaming now. While LT and SV would be a great game for Poth, for those 2 power houses it would be like UT playing Incarnate Word. Poth would have no chance. Maybe you should try to play teams like Refugio, that ... More ›

He will not get fired, they will slap his hand and let him return to the field. His wife is the new Director of Personnel, do you honestly think she wants that on her record that she had to fire her husband because of his stupidity? ... More ›

Poth does not want to play Floresville in football because it hurts our strength of schedule portion of our BCS ranking. We keep trying to get a rivalry going with Lake Travis and Smithson Valley but they keep dodging us. So ... More ›

Well to be honest old pirate, if Floresville could play Cole, Natalia, Stockdale and some of those other schools with great football traditions, it could have a winning season every year. Would be nice to see Floresville play ... More ›
