Friday Night Lights: Bo Seibel selected as Yuma Coach of the Year

Seibel led Yuma Criminals to best record since 1993 in third year

YUMA, Ariz., (KYMA, KECY) - It took over a decade for the Yuma Criminals football program to record a winning season, dating all the way back to 2009. In 2022, new heights were reached for the Crims.

In just his third year at the helm, Bo Seibel rallied the troops and created a brotherhood that held certain accountability and responsibility that had been missing for some time.

From the classroom to the field, Seibel was able to preach a sense of togetherness and family from the top down - going from the coaches to giant crew of seniors that have grown.

Despite a 7-3 overall record, the Criminals were left out of the 3A playoff bracket. Although that ultimately ended the season on a sour note, Seibel and the staff led the Criminals to their best record since 1993.

A proud accomplishment, nonetheless. A massive step in the right direction, altogether.
