BROOKWOOD FOOTBALL

Brookwood welcomes new era with Jones

Mark Crews took over the Brookwood program in 2001 and led the Broncos to the 2010 state championship before retiring after last season. New head coach Philip Jones was named the school's newest head coach this offseason and the 1997 Brookwood grad will be introduced to the team Tuesday night at 7 p.m in a meet and greet. The Broncos are coming off a 2-8 season, the worst finish since a 1-9 mark in 1986. Jones served as a head coach at Banks County from 2011-2012 and went 10-11 in his two seasons before joining the Brookwood staff as an assistant the past two seasons. Jones was the captain of Brookwood's 1996 state championship team and his father Tom has been a Brookwood assistant for 28 seasons. Jones is looking to keep the continuity going for one of the state's most consistent football powers and he played for the only two Bronco head coaches since 1987, Dave Hunter (1987-2001) and Crews (2002-14).

"Coach Hunter was the head coach when I played and Coach Crews was an assistant when I played," Jones told the Gwinnett Daily Post last month. "He was always one of the favorite coaches on staff. He's done such a great job as head coach. To have two head coaches in 28 years, it's incredibly humbling and an honor. They're awfully big shoes to fill. It's a lot to live up to but I couldn't be more honored and excited about the opportunity. I'm going to work my tail off to bring this program back to prominence where it's supposed to be."
  

COLLINS HILL HIRES DAVID MAY

May looks to return Lady Eagles to prominence

It has been since 2007 when the Collins Hill girls basketball program last saw success. Superstar Maya Moore led the Eagles to a third straight state title and had the program at the center of the basketball world. The Eagles have not made the playoffs since the three-peat and have hired current West Forsyth head coach David May to take the program back to the postseason. 

 

When you look at girls basketball in the state of Georgia, it starts in Gwinnett County," May told the Gwinnett Daily Post. "When you look at teams that have won state titles and the number of teams from Gwinnett that have won state titles, and the history and success Collins Hill has had, you know there are athletes in that area that can make that job successful. They haven't had recent success, but it's something where you go in, work hard at it, try to improve the skill level, get some kids out there. It's a place where I think we can be successful at the state level."
