Braswell Stepping Down As Hoggard Football Coach


         WILMINGTON—Scott Braswell is stepping down as the head football coach at Hoggard High School, although he will remain as athletic director, according to a report in the Wilmington Star-News.

         Under Braswell’s leadership, the football program has won 12 conference championships.  He has served as athletic director there since 2008.
