TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

Police are looking for the suspects who burglarized a Temple High School football coach’s home while he was away with the team as they competed in the state championships.

Toby Rumfield, an assistant football coach and head baseball coach, was in Dallas Saturday for the game.

With the Wildcats losing  Rumfield said the family's spirits were pretty low already. When they returned to their home they were greeted to what Rumfield describes as a disaster. 

"They went through emptied every drawer, every closet. Televisions, iPads, anything of value they took it, " Rumfield said.

The thieves even took Christmas presents from under the tree and throughout the house.

"My daughter, throughout the year, will buy Christmas presents. Christmas is her favorite time of the year and the first thing she did was run to her closet and came back crying," said Rumfield.

A report from Temple Police said they got a call around 8:04 p.m. from the homeowners that the back door of the home was wide open when they returned. In the police report perfume, cologne, a PlayStation are just some of the items listed as missing. Rumfield said though frustrating most things can be replaced, it's his championship rings that are one of a kind. 

"One of these days, I was maybe going to pull them out and show my grandkids. I've shown my kids. I mean it means something to me it was a lot of work winning those." Rumfield earned the rings from his time playing baseball professionally in both the minor and major leagues. 

In the wake of the burglary, Rumfield said that the community has shown his family a lot of support even setting up a donation page. He hopes that his story will serve as a cautionary tale to other homeowners this holiday. 

"We have to look out for one another. You know if you're  leaving town, let people know you're leaving. Have people check on your home while you're gone," he said. 

Police are still looking for suspects, anyone with information is told to call police.
