Luttrell leaves Chestatee head job for Buford



Chestatee head coach Stan Luttrell was approved by the Buford City Board of Education on Monday to become a member of the Buford football coaching staff. Luttrell took

over the Chestatee program (24 miles up the road from Buford) in 2006 and led the War Eagles to a 46-38 record and four playoff appearances.


 Prior to Luttrell's arrival, the  recently retired head coach Matt Fligg led the program from its inception in 2002 until 2005. The War Eagles' 6-5 season in 2005 marked the program's first-ever playoff appearance.


Chestatee set a school record this past season with nine wins (9-3) and for the first time in its history won a playoff game (41-13 over Grady).


The approval by the Buford City Board of Education on Monday  inspired this statement that was released by Chestatee principal Suzanne Jarrard following the news.


"It has come to my attention late this evening that Coach Stan Luttrell was approved by the Buford City Board of Education to become a member of their football coaching staff. Coach Luttrell will be resigning his position as head football coach here at Chestatee effective immediately. We appreciate his eight years of service to our school and community, and we wish him and his family all the best. CHS will continue to build on the foundation that he has laid which culminated this past season in the first GHSA state playoff win in school history."


Luttrell's first Georgia head coaching job came at Union County and he spent two seasons at the school. The Panthers faced Buford twice and fell by a combined 90-7.


Had Luttrell stayed at Chestatee this season, he would be facing Buford this upcoming season in region play. The 2014-16 GHSA reclassification bumped Buford up to Class AAAA and the Wolves will be in the same nine-team region (Region 8-AAAA) as the War Eagles for the next two seasons. 


Region 8 will include: Buford, Chestatee, Johnson-Gainesville, Madison County, Monroe Area, North Hall, North Oconee, Stephens County and White County.


Before becoming a head coach, Luttrell spent time in Hall County serving as the defensive coordinator at Johnson-Gainesville for 2002 and '03 seasons while serving as the team's strength coordinator.


There have been 54 head coaching vacancies have been filled this offseason in Georgia and Chestatee joins Campbell, Cartersville, Greenbrier, Jones County, Lambert, Lithia Springs, M.L. King, Miller County, Stone Mountain, Thomson and Walker in its search for a new head coach.




McIntosh reaches the top in Class 5A



A Monday showdown between the top two teams in Class AAAAA went McIntosh's way at the expense of Northgate in a 1-0 decision. McIntosh is now the new No. 1, with

Northgate falling to the second spot. The Chiefs have posted three straight shutouts dating back to March 20. Flowery Branch dropped to No. 10 after losing to seventh-ranked Gainesville 2-0 on Friday.


The top teams in the other five classifications maintained their positions, although they were not without blemishes. A clash between the No. 1 squad in Class AAA and the No. 2 team in Class AA saw St. Pius succumb to Greater Atlanta Christian 4-1 on Friday. St. Pius bounced back one day later with a 5-0 blanking of Decatur. Blessed Trinity and Woodward are still second and third, respectively, in Class AAA after Blessed Trinity won their Tuesday matchup 2-1.


Class A featured a busy week, with multiple top 10 meetings. Hebron Christian beat Providence Christian 4-1 and edged Wesleyan 1-0 to remain at No. 2 behind First Presbyterian Day. Holy Innocents' scored a 2-1 victory over Fellowship Christian to move up to No. 4. Paideia defeated Class AAAA's Chamblee 3-2 and stayed at No. 6. Walker and Mt. Paran Christian swapped spots at ninth and 10th after Walker won their head-to-head match 1-0.


River Ridge is making a debut appearance in the Class AAAA rankings after getting the best of Cass 3-2 on Tuesday.
