CALHOUN CITY, Miss. (WTVA) - Calhoun City has had some successful head football coaches in recent years with names like Perry Liles and Mike Ray.
Following Liles' retirement last season, defensive coordinator Chad White was promoted to head coach.
Heading into his first season, White says his seniors are already showing the kind of leadership he expects.
"Our whole senior class has been great this summer, really good attendance," White said. "We had some kids that weren't coming, and those seniors, the next day, you would see them drive up in their truck or their car, and they'd have some of those younger kids with them.
"Our senior class has really been good, and you're usually as good as your seniors are, those guys have really stepped up this summer."
White's debut as Calhoun City head coach comes Aug. 23 when the Wildcats visit Ashland.
