  Note to my champion players:
It will be a while till the lessons we are to learn from such a disappointing final game come clear but, it
will come clear one day. In a situation where hopes were so high, a community so charged, a school with
such joyful expectation, you were so ready and confident and prepared. The thought of actually having to deal
with a loss was just not in our minds at all. When someone would mention that, “even if we lose,” You guys
would stop them and say “It ain’t gonna happen!”
You all played with the heart that you always played with, and played every play like it was your last, and you
just can’t be anything but disappointed when you do that and still come up short. I can’t even say “lose”
because we whipped the britches off Toombs pretty much all night with exception of a couple of plays, a missed
opportunity or two, and a couple of turnovers, which usually does get you beat. We needed to be near perfect
that night and we weren’t.
We were new to this winning thing and you guys played so huge all year that we won many games when
we weren’t perfect. I want to thank all of you players for your dedication, the total effort, and the pride you took
in all we were trying to do, while making a coach glow with pride for being a part of you. In life, you are the kind
of people I love to be around and no matter where you go and what you end up doing, I will always be proud
to be a tiny part of your life and look forward to seeing you when our paths meet. Good luck to all of our
seniors who displayed the kind of leadership and character, that is very rare, and we will miss you greatly.
I hope you keep coming around to watch later what you got started here.
As for our returnees, I look forward to see what you will do with what we’ve created, and look for the new
leaders to rise, for we have some great times to have ahead, and some unfinished business to tend to.
Know what I mean?
 

THE 2004 GAMES ARE HISTORY !!!!

We are now REGION CHAMPS & 2004 STATE RUNNER-UP overall (11-2). This was a tremendous accomplishment by a group of young men determined the change the course of their schools history. These football players were focused on one thing and that was the state title from the first day of practice. These unlikely individuals with slight physical stature with very few football successes to build on, had hearts so big that their small bodies could barely contain them. When coaches across the country are talking about players with heart or playing with heart, they need to visit the campus of Nathanael Greene Academy in Siloam Georgia to meet the kids I coached this year. Though we have the whole season on film, it could never capture the tremendous character that this group had and the absolute David and Goliath size differentials that they faced each and every week. The heart of these players proved to be larger than is logically believable and I'm sure other coaches are baffled in how this team did it. Well, I'm not telling any of my secrets if there are any, but you would have to go inside the heart and character of: Trey Dunagan, Luke Askew, Adam Taylor, Zeke Robinson, Jamie Rhodes, Conrad Easley, Wayne Lindsey, Craig Stuart, Zeb Duvall, Jimmy Easley, Gray Holcomb, Daniel Dowdy, Matthew Wheeler, Hank Carlton, Win Corry, and Chris Eddy, to find out. For the seniors, Nathanael Greene will miss you deeply and I will miss and remember you forever, for you have left an example of great leadership and some awfully big shoes to fill.

 Please come support the Home Team Friday and let this group of hard workers know that you appreciate their commitment to being the best they can be!

 

My special thanks to Ricky Easley "Esquire" for his extraordinary efforts in helping me get all I need, to get everything going as efficiently as possible and also to Jim Prance for his strong support for the football program.

My thanks also to all football parents and our board members for their consistent support and willingness to do whatever it takes. I will need lots of your help to keep the ball rolling in a winning way and with your help,  I hope to make this a great football experience for all, and a season we can be proud of.  Coach H

Vocabulary word:  gription (grip-shun)  I have learned quite a bit about the country life while coaching here at NGA, and one of the most colorful things I've noticed is the solid  hard working American people and some new language I had not heard before. But I'm very willing to learn. The latest word I had to learn was in a scrimmage game when Hank Carlton came off the field and said, "COACH, I can't get any gription out there". After picking myself up, after a hilarious romp, I had to insist that he not do that to me in a tough football game. Gription: A word meaning the contact of one surface to the other, such as shoes meeting the ground. Traction or friction. Make a note for that is one for the books. I know there is a lot to learn, and I'll be keeping my ears open for more insight into the language I am supposed to know. LH     "This is now an excepted part of the language at NGA."

 

Our School features an unmistakable historic building that adds traditional value to our campus. We also have a museum on campus featuring thousands of artifacts, historic articles, and collections from Greene County GA.
