La Junta moved quickly to fill its head football coach vacancy.

Ty Buderus will become the school's next football coach, according to principal Dan Nuschy and athletic director Scott Goheen. The move comes less than four days after Clint Buderus resigned to take the same role at Pueblo West.

Ty Buderus, Clint's brother, has been La Junta's defensive coordinator for the past seven seasons, and has helped the Tigers become one of Class 2A's most prominent programs.

La Junta has reached the championship game each of the past two seasons, winning in 2016.

The Tigers return a lot of talent in 2018, including two-time player of the year Jon Nuschy.
