“Basketball is pretty much an Owen legacy,” Shannon Owen said.
I’m not sure truer words have ever been spoken. The Owen family is well known around the Archer County community and in gyms all across north Texas. Shannon spent several of his early coaching years in Archer City before moving to Seymour. His oldest son, Tyler, graduated from Holliday in 2009 as a standout on the hardwood before following his father’s footsteps in coaching at Archer City. Now the head coach at Windthorst, Tyler gets an opportunity few others have: a chance to coach his younger brother, Max.
