Houston-area football coach to receive liver transplant from fellow coach

by Jeff Fisher

On Thursday, two assistant football coaches at Cypress Ranch High School, outside of Houston, Texas, will take life beyond X’s and O’s.

ABC-TV 13 reports that Cy-Ranch John McWilliams, who needs a liver transplant, will get 63 percent of fellow assistant Matthew Beeler’s liver.  Beeler told ABC-TV 13, “You never know when you’ll have the opportunity to do something great.”

Last year, Cy-Ranch lost to three-time High School Football America national champion Allen in the Texas 6A-Division I title game.
