 Leesburg - The 2008 high school season was one of the toughest in Lee County history with the Trojans failing to win a game.

 The winless season is also leading to a coaching change.

Lee County head football coach David Johnson has submitted his resignation.

After going 0-10, Johnson says it is time to let someone else have the opportunity to try to return the Trojan program to the winning ranks.

David Johnson was hired at Lee County in 2004.

In his second season, Lee County had their best in school history with ten wins their first ever region title.

Since then, Lee County has just won five games in three seasons.

Johnson is proud of that region title, the nearly dozen players who are now playing college football from his program and the fact no player quit during this past season which the Trojans failed to win a game.

David Johnson said "I wish we could have one more. That is part of the game. We had a young team this year. We got a lot of experience. Our seniors did a great job of leading."

 David Johnson has also resigned as Lee County athletic director during the spring.
