ANDREWS, Texas – It was a special homecoming for David Renfro when he was selected to lead the Mustang Soccer program in its formative years.
“I wanted to come back to my roots in West Texas and be a bigger part of a small town community. Coming to Andrews has been a pleasant experience for my family and I,” Renfro said. “Being given the opportunity to both teach and coach at Andrews High School is a real blessing and I’m looking forward to the years ahead in the classroom and on the Soccer field.”
Renfro arrives in Andrews after spending the last five years at Clark County School District in Las Vegas, Nev. During his stint, Renfro worked with 7th-12th grade students with learning disabilities. He was also the softball head coach and a member of the wrestling coaching staff.
