A Big Night For FPD Fans and Families

When the FPD Vikings start their 2013 season tonight against George Walton, their football field will have a name. 

Athletic Director and head football coach Greg Moore announced last May that the school would name the field after Austin Childers.

The 22-year-old graduated from First Presbyterian Day School in 2009.  He is battling a rare mitochondrial disease.

Coach Moore, family and friends surprised Austin with the announcement last spring at Macon's hospice facility where Austin is a patient.

"Football has always been his passion," said Moore.   "He's a red and black Viking kind of guy, and always has been.  [Austin] loves what we've got going on and always wants to talk about what's next at our school and what's happening, particularly with our football team."

New Football Coaches Ready to Make Mark this Season

New Football Coaches Ready to Make Mark this Season

Two new head football coaches will make their marks on the field this season. At Howard High School, Coach Barney Hester hopes to turn things around after two fairly lackluster seasons for the school, and at Southwest High School, Coach Joe Dupree has taken over the reins from longtime coach, Carror Wright.

 

Coach Barney Hester, Howard High School

Coach Hester officially took over as Athletic Director and Head Football Coach at Howard High School in March. He came to the Howard from Tattnall Square Academy, where he led players to 11 state football championship titles since 1982. While at Tattnall, he served in such positions as Headmaster, Athletic Director, Head Football Coach, and Head Track Coach.

Prior to his work at Tattnall, Coach Hester worked at Josey Academy and Gordon Ivey High School before joining the coaching staff at Georgia Southern University when the university first began its college program.
