Longtime assistant coach Ron Burnham is finally getting his shot to be a head football coach on the sidelines after the Ore City Rebels named him as their new head coach replacing the retiring Terry Blankenship.
The Temple graduate who played under the legendary Bob McQueen, has been in an assistant with a number of programs including Arlington Bowie, Dublin, New Caney and China Spring. He was also an assistant head coach for Waco University, Magnolia West and Round Rock Cedar Ridge.
He replaces Tracy Blankenship, who has coached the Ore City Rebels the last seven seasons, fought hard to turn around a Rebels program that had the label of being a difficult place to win as a coach. In his seven seasons, he collected a record of 33-40 with two trips to the playoffs including 2014 where the Rebels went 9-3 after posting back-to-back 1-9 records to start the Blankenship era.
Prior to Ore City, Blankenship made his mark with the White Oak Roughnecks, who made the playoff five times in his eight seasons there. Overall, Blankenship leaves the sport with a 75-83 record with seven post-season appearances.
