There are two things that lifelong Pearland brothers Roy and Rene Aguilar dominate; detailing cars and coaching youth football.  The brothers started their business, R&R Supershine in 1987 at the old Oiler car wash next door to present day Killen’s BBQ on 518 and since then have become the Kings of Carwash in Pearland.  The duo has shined up whips for former and current professional athletes from all over Houston.  What many people don’t know is that they are also among the most successful youth football coaches in Texas.

Growing up the youngest of 10 kids in Pearland, they had no choice but to be tough and toughness is exactly what they would bring to the table when they started playing youth football themselves for the Pearland Texans back in the late 1970’s.  The brothers won the Bay Area Football League(BAFLSuper Bowl twice as players in 1978 and 1980 with Roy playing quarterback and Rene playing cornerback on defense.

The duo began coaching for the Pearland Patriots in 1991 and coached 16 seasons total in BAFL(Patriots,Cowboys,Texans, and Hurricanes), making 14 Super Bowl appearances and winning an unprecedented 10 Super Bowl Championships!  During their tenure coaching in BAFL, they coached multiple college and NFL players, including current Ole Miss defensive back Deontay Anderson.

Their success on the field is unparalleled, but it’s the success of their athletes off the field is what is most important to the brothers.  Growing up with 8 siblings, one can imagine the logistical challenges involved with getting to practices and games as kids and they often were unable to participate in certain sports due to not having a ride.  “We want to do whatever we can to help our kids get to practices and games, even if we have to go pick them up ourselves” says Roy.  When it comes to their success on the field, Aguilar states, “We just try to teach discipline and not make things too complicated.  We play smart, basic football.”  With no sons of their own, the Aguilar brothers do their part to help these young athletes become productive members of society by teaching life lessons on and off the field.

They are now in their 21st year coaching and have started a brand new program, the Pearland Vikings.  The freshman team that they coach went 8-1 on the season scoring 248 points on the season while only allowing opposing teams to score 3 touchdowns all season. The Vikings play in Texas Intercity Football Inc(TIFI).  With 4 of the 5 Viking teams making the playoffs in their first season in TIFI, it looks as if the dominance will continue.  Their freshman squad won its first playoff game with a hard fought 6-0 win over the LaPorte Cowboys.

Premium Content The House That Pup Built


Believe it or not, The Pearland Oiler football program has not always been a juggernaut.

There was a time, when Pearland went years without winning a single game! Hard to imagine, right?  Tony Heath and his regime showed up on campus in the Spring of 1997 and they brought with them something that the football program knew little about; a winning culture.  Before The Rig was The Rig, and long before The Oilers would share a stadium with powerhouse Dawson, it was simply an auxiliary field.  A field where sub-varsity football games took place during the week and small aluminum stands held the handful of parents in attendance.

 

Tony Heath was taking over a program that for decades was the homecoming rival of nearly every opponent. The 1997 season started off slow and typical for Pearland, but exciting things were on the horizon as Coach Heath called up freshman running back, Anthony Evans. Anthony was the younger brother of former Oiler standouts Shone Evans and Dwayne Evans and football ran deep in his blood!

 

It was mid-October and The Oilers were still winless, when Pearland hosted Pasadena and Evans rushed for 178 yards with 3 touchdowns as Pearland won 24-13 ending a 23 game losing streak. Being the only freshman to play on varsity, Anthony garnered the nickname “Pup” from the upper classmen.

 

Pup went on to lead Pearland to its first playoff appearance in years, despite finishing 2-8 on the season. The next three seasons would create the beginning of one of the greatest turnarounds in Texas high school football history. Pup rushed for over 6,000 yards in his career at Pearland, scored 66 touchdowns and was twice awarded All-State honors. In 2002, the season after Pup graduated,  the little auxiliary field at Pearland High School became a 9200 seat stadium known as, The Rig. Evans success in the backfield was the beginning of a system implemented by the great football minds of coaches Tony Heath and Eric Wells. Their philosophy, along with the talented Evans paved the way for a legacy of dynamic running backs to carry the ball for the Oilers, including Brandon Roberson, Fozzy Whittaker, Casey Carrier and Dustin Garrison.

 

Evans went on to play at the University of Houston and helped get that program turned around under Head Coach Art Briles. Pup’s college career was hampered with a calf injury, but he still managed to end up with the 6th most rushing yards in U of H history with 2115 yards.
Pup graduated from The University of Houston with a degree in Communications and was a graduate assistant coach under Head Coach Kevin Sumlin before coaching at Texas City High School and Clear Falls High School.

 

He is currently the Offensive Coordinator at Dobie High School under Head Coach Mike Norman where he continues to exhibit his football talents.
He and his wife Heather have 3 daughters and reside in Santa Fe, Tx.
Anthony is the inaugural member of the PearlandSports.Com Hall of Champions.
