When it comes to brotherhood, there’s none better than the high school football coaching fraternity.

I recently was told about Cedar Hill High School assistant coach Steven Lemley, who been dealing with quite a bit of adversity recently.  Lemley, who has two teenager girls, plus a 21 year old son, is battling throat cancer and a couple weeks ago, had a fire at his house that destroyed the home’s roof and garage, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Coach Lemley, who is a U.S. history teach at the school, has been a coach with the Longhorns for 13 years.

Cedar Hill head coach Joey McGuire‘s wife Debbie has established a GoFundMe.com page for Coach Lemley.

Coach McGuire told the Dallas Morning News — “He’s just one of those guys you can always count on.  He’s been here rain or shine, and he’s been through a little bit of rain here lately.”
