Klein Forest is taking a chance on one of its own.
Coming off a winless season, the Eagles needed a change, and on the heels of Ajani Sanders’ departure from the program, a move was made.
And it created a familiar situation.
Former Klein Forest standout Johnathan Wilson was recently hired to revive his old team, according to VYPE Houston reporter Matt Malatesta.
BREAKING: Klein Forest's Wilson Coming Home 🏈
"This means the world to me. "This is my dream job and something I've been thinking about since I was 15-years old."

Wilson played receiver for the Eagles from 2004 to 2007 and was an all-state selection as the team flourished.
Times have changed, though.
Klein Forest averaged just 17.9 points per game last season, and their win totals for the last four seasons under Sanders have been paltry, diminishing from three in 2016 to two in 2017 to one in 2018 before going 0-10 last year.
Starting this fall, the Eagles will compete in a restructured District 15-6A alongside Klein, Klein Cane, Klein Collins, Klein Oak, Tomball and Tomball Memorial.
