AUGUSTA, Ga. – A big-name Augusta-area football coach has found a new home across the river.
Fox Creek High School hired former Evans High School coach Lemuel Lackey to the same position.
“Fox Creek is excited about the experience that Coach Lackey brings to our young football program,” Fox Creek Principal Josh Trahan said in a press release. “Coach has produced winning teams at two previous schools and we are excited to have that knowledge join our players and coaches.”
Lackey led the Knights to a 39-30 record and three Region 3-AAAAAA titles in six seasons. Evans won back-to-back region titles the past two season and a home playoff win over Statesboro in the first round. Prior to joining Evans, Lackey led Laney High School to a 56-33 record over eight seasons.
Fox Creek struggled to a 1-5 record during its first season in Class 3A. Lackey takes over a program with one of South Carolina’s top offensive line prospects in Nick Williams and quarterback Jadon Johnson.
