Coach Bill Carrico and Coach C.H. Collins are remembered by generations of Denton Broncos as two of the individuals who were most instrumental in leading the successful integration of Denton High School in 1968. They set an example for the community in building a friendship that strengthened to brotherhood as they led Denton High School’s most successful football team in 43 years, which won the bi-district championship in 1972. After football, they became successful and beloved school administrators until their retirements: Coach Carrico as Denton ISD Athletic Director and Coach Collins as Denton High School Dean of Men. Separately, they are memorialized by the beautiful Denton ISD athletic facilities that bear their names.
The Denton High School Family Assistance Foundation (“Denton High Cares”) is proud to present the Third Annual Carrico/Collins Memorial Weekend, honoring the memories of these great men, together, just as they were so often linked in life.
On Sunday, October 10, 2021, at the beautiful Oakmont Country Club in Corinth, Texas, the Foundation will host the first ever Carrico/Collins Scholarship Celebration Banquet, where scholarships will be awarded to two deserving Denton High School graduates of the Class of 2021. Join us for an evening of music, laughter, fellowship and fun as we celebrate the Carrico and Collins families and honor our scholarship recipients.
On Monday, October 11, 2021, we will gather for a great day of golf, also at the Oakmont Country Club. Sign-in will begin at 10:30 a.m., with a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m. Lunch will be served beginning at 11:00 a.m., and after the round, we will have a great time at a reception and awards ceremony, with music by the Denton High School Jazz Band and tons of fun, with incredible raffle prizes as well as amazing prizes for the winning golfers.
This will be the Foundation's first fundraiser in almost TWO YEARS, and we can't wait! Click on https://www.planmygolfevent.com/35296-CarricoCollins3 to sign up today!
