Crandall Pirates Basketball Coach Nets 300th Career Win

The Pirates and Coach Short went to battle with cross town rival Kaufman on Tuesday, December 17, 2019. After a hard-fought contest Crandall came out on top with the 49-46 victory and Coach Short’s 300th win.

The Crandall High School men’s basketball program has been under the leadership of Coach Stan Short for the last fourteen years. Coach Short started his career as an assistant in Crandall for five years before receiving the head coach position in 2006.

Several former players and many fans were on hand for the special occasion. I asked Coach Short about reaching this milestone and what it meant to him. He said, “All 304 varsity wins have been at Crandall. It’s very unusual for a coach to stay in one place that long, but it has been a blessing for me and my family to be in a great district for my entire career.”
