Charlton County coach Rich McWhorter can become the seventh coach in GHSA history to win five state championships. Who are the six head coaches who have won five or more? (Answer Wednesday)
Answer to Monday’s question: The head coach in the 2013 state finals who won a state championship as a Georgia player in 1988 was Griffin’s Steve Devoursney. He was a player at R.E. Lee, which in 1992 merged with Upson High and became Upson-Lee.
