RIP Coach. You’ll be missed.
Coach Sonny Detmer was a mentor to me! I owe Sonny a bunch in teaching me how to read defenses, the passing game and everything about offensive football!
I remember going down to Mission Texas and hooking up with Sonny in the summer and him teaching me the BYU offense and putting it into his terminology.
Sonny always made time for me and was a excellent teacher he took his time and would explain in depth.
I enjoyed his two years when he was at Central…. Ty and Koy were our ball boys 1980-81.
I’m going to miss his great long stories, his friendly demeanor and his sincere love for his family!
Rest In Peace my dear friend! Thanks for everything Sonny!!!!
I can’t express how Coach Sonny Detmer impacted my life and others throughout these years!! He will be greatly missed by all. Will always have a place in our hearts ! Thank you Sonny for all you have done !!!
Bulldog Nation mourns the loss of one of our iconic family members. Somerset Head Football Coach Sonny Detmer went home to be with the Lord this afternoon.
Words fail to suffice in detail the lasting impact Coach Detmer had not only on generations of Bulldogs student-athletes, but for the entire Somerset community. For us in Bulldog Nation, Sonny was more than a legend in Texas High School Football lore with the famous high-octane, high-scoring passing attacks he brought to the game. Coach Detmer was a servant leader and a father figure to thousands of athletes in a career spanning five decades, leaving a legacy of life lessons much larger than any game.
Information about any funeral arrangements or memorial services will be forthcoming. Right now, our minds are with the Detmer family. Our thoughts, prayers and deepest condolences go out to Betty Detmer, and everyone in Sonny’s family.
May Coach Detmer Rest In Peace…
