He was a part of each of Mount Ida’s state championships. He was a member of the 2007 state championship team as a player and served as a coach for the 2016 state championship team.
He played for the Ouachita Baptist University Tigers football team.
Guerra stated that he is thankful for the opportunity to come home to Mount Ida to begin his coaching career, but is looking forward to working on the college level now.
“This gives me a chance to do football full time.” He stated.
He did admit that it is hard to leave the kids he has worked with for the past two years, but he is looking forward to the next phase of his coaching career.
