Supporters tell school board to keep coach

March 10, 2005

Sylvester - Supporters of Worth County head football coach Harold Brantley told the school board  why they should bring him back for a fourth season.

The school board however may wait until next month before deciding whether to renew Brantley's contract.

Supporters of coach Brantley turned out for Thursday night's board meeting after hearing the board discussed whether to renew the coach's contract and the contracts of three principals during an executive session held during their monthly meeting last week.

Tonight, Fred Dent spoke on behalf of Harold Brantley and pointed out that Brantley knows what it takes to build a winning football program from working under former Worth County head coach Milt Miller.

Miller won a state title at Worth County in 1987 and also at Lowndes in 1999.

Dent also said that the Worth County football program has improved in each of Brantley's first three seasons and that the program will continue to improve under his steady leadership.

No board member offered any comment after listening to Dent and the others who were speaking in support of the three school principals.
