Joe Gillespie is leaving Stephenville for the University of Tulsa. He was 72-23 in seven seasons and guided the Yellow Jackets to the 2012 3A Division I championship. Russell Huffman was a photographer of record at as many Stephenville games during Gillespie’s head coaching tenure as anyone. Here are some of Huffman’s personally selected favorites from a great era in Stephenville Yellow Jacket football:
