Coach Roger Masters, who attended Sam Houston State University, is the defensive coordinator for the BISD Thundering Herd. He is married with two children. This will be Masters first season in Buffalo. However, he is no stranger to the defensive coordinator position. Masters, who is a fifteen year coaching veteran, has already spent four years as a defensive coordinator. He most recently coached at Rock Springs High School. Masters shared that he has coached at both big and small schools.

When asked about important qualities for a successful team, Masters mentioned several key components. Number one is learning to play for something bigger than yourself. Number two is throwing away the selfish aspect of playing. Number three is playing for your team, your school, your community. Masters says that in terms of goals for the season, he wants to “shut everyone out”. He wants to see the kids play and make their community proud. Masters is very excited about the upcoming season.
