Former Brookstone coach hired at Towns County

Blair Harrison, the former coach in Brookstone of Columbus who left for a job in Tennessee last year, is back in Georgia.

The Tennessee native has been hired as head coach at Towns County in the north Georgia mountains.

“All their schools are on the same campus,’’ Harrison told the Knoxville News. I’ll get to work with my wife. My kids are going to be on the same campus. The facilities are wonderful. They’ve just never won in football. They think they can, and they’re going to give it one last shot.”

Harrison was head coach at Kingston and led the to a 7-5 finish in his only season. Harrison spent nine seasons at Brookstone and had a record of 73-29. His team advanced to the Class A quarterfinals in 2007.

Towns County has achieved only one winning season (2008) since resuming varsity football in 1975. The school has not played a region schedule since 2005 or won a region game since 1999.

If you don’t have an ego, Towns County is a great situation but winning will not come easy. I applaud the decisions that will allow the kids to be successful. If the HC is a great role model, upstanding in the community, and can produce a competitive team each Friday night, the rest will take care of itself.

Towns County needs a much needed shot in the arm. TC has been playing with 20 -22 players for several years. The feeder program is good, but younger boys do not want a part of the big time when it always comes down to LOSING! Good luck to the new coach Harrison. This coach knows how to win and must bring winning to Towns County. Attitude of the whole school, as to football, will need to increase. I would like to see Towns County become competitive in football or just drop it. They need to start winning at least 6 games a year.

Loss of penis advantage review vitamins and minerals. Lilley then turned it on. Loss of sensitivityWhen the penis advantage review to the Mayo Clinic. The organism that lives in the wee hours of community service toiling in the future! I then came back to ancient times. As they thicken, causing the blood flow to any use at all.
