Well, it is official my friends, Ed Pilcher is now the Athletic Director and Head Football coach at Bainbridge High School. Of course, the opening was first created when Ricky Woods left after just one season at the helm.
He did, however, show us the potential in the Bearcats football program. He led the team to the Elite eight for the state title, and at one point ran off 6 straight wins.
The team that ended that streak was ironically the Thomas County Central Yellow Jackets coached by Ed Pilcher. It will now be Pilcher coaching the Bearcats and the players seem up for the task.
"The new coach we got coming in from Thomasville. I think we gone do a good job cause we got some good runners and a different quarterback. It'll probably be a pretty good season," says Bainbridge High wide out Markeith Chrispen.
