Sylvester - The pressure was on Worth County High head football coach Harold Brantley to have a winning season in his fourth year in Sylvester.
Unfortunately for the Rams, they managed just one win this season and Harold Brantley handed in his resignation.
Brantley's resignation comes one day before the Worth County school board was scheduled to discuss the Ram football program at his regular monthly meeting.
Last spring, the school board was rumored to be considering not bringing back Brantley for a fourth season but the board voted in March to renew the coach's contract.
An assistant at Worth County for former Rams head coach Milt Miller in the 1980's, Harold Brantley wanted to bring stability to a Worth County program that had gone through three head coaches in ten years since Milt Miller left for Lowndes.
In Brantley's first three years, Worth County's win total increased each season.
However, Worth County did not have a winning record in and failed to make the state playoffs in all four seasons under Brantley.
