Five generations of Koy Hughes’ family have graduated from Garber High School.
He didn’t want his son to break that tradition.
With that in mind, Hughes is leaving his post as head football and baseball coach at Waukomis High School to return to his alma mater.
Hughes will be an assistant football coach, serving as the defensive coordinator on Blake Lamle’s staff and take over for Lamle as the Wolverines’ head baseball coach.
“That’s where I’m from and it’s just an opportunity I couldn’t turn down,” Hughes said.
He’s served as the Chiefs’ baseball coach the last three years, during which time they compiled a 38-39 record. He was the head football coach in each of the past two seasons and guided Waukomis to a 10-12 mark while reaching the playoffs each year.
“To have the opportunity to go learn from Coach Lamle, someone who has won two state titles, was really big for me,” Hughes said. “This is something, if I want to be a head coach again, that will really benefit me down the line.”
Lamle came to Garber prior to the 2018 season after a five-year stint at Shattuck, the last two as a head coach. His 2017 team won the Class B title and he was the offensive coordinator on the 2015 title team.
“I’m very excited to welcome Coach Hughes back home,” Garber superintendent Will Jones said. “This is a huge hire for our athletic program. He brings great experience as a head football and head baseball coach, and more than anything, the bleeds maroon and gray. He takes great pride in being a Wolverine and is going to come in here and grind and work for Garber.”
Hughes graduated from Garber in 1999 and played on the 1998 Class B state championship football team.
Hughes was also on some successful Garber baseball teams.
“Garber had a really good run in baseball in the 80s and 90s and I’d really like to help get us back there,” Hughes said.

Waukomis experienced the “next man up” mentality before the 2018 regular season even began. Just before the Chiefs (0-0) season opener Friday night at Snyder (1-0), sophomore running back Wyatt Felber separated his shoulder. He will be out two-to-four weeks. “That really hurt,” Waukomis head football coach Koy Hughes said Wednesday.

On the way home from Labor Day weekend at Grand Lake, I decided to stop at 1907 Barbecue in Tulsa and see what all the recent recognition and hype was all about.
1907 has had a growing positive following among BBQ lovers in past months and this was especially highlighted in a recent article and review in Texas Monthly.
We all know, or should at least, that the quality of sliced brisket is what really separates the pretty good BBQ places from the truly great ones…and the brisket that 1907 has been cooking has been highly acclaimed for quite some while.
I had also been intrigued by their pictures of their barbacoa tacos, which they only serve on Sundays, so I decided it was time to check things out for myself.
1907 Barbecue started as food truck in Tulsa and has now moved to the very popular Mother Road Market, which is a collection of several restaurants and shops all under one roof, offering seating both inside and outside.
This made for a very neat atmosphere for what was sure to be an excellent lunch!
The sliced brisket was everything it was made out to be and more.
It was perfectly moist, high in buttery fat content and had a dark, rich bark crust.
1907 produced the melt-in-your-mouth quality sliced brisket I wanted and honestly it was one the best pieces of sliced brisket I have ever had in Oklahoma.
I can confidently say that it is in the discussion for the best brisket in Oklahoma - without question.
The barbacoa tacos at 1907 are made with slow roasted beef cheek and packed full of tremendous flavor!
