Ragsdale Athletic Director Resigns

JAMESTOWN — Ragsdale athletics director Glen Locklear is resigning to become an assistant principal at Wilmington Ashley, according to the Greensboro News and Record. His last day at Ragsdale is Friday.

Brian Herndon, a longtime teacher at the Jamestown school, will take over the duties of athletic director at Ragsdale.

Herndon served as Ragsdale’s head football coach in the early 1990s and has two sons on the football team.

Locklear has spent two stints at Ragsdale totaling nine years, the last four as athletics director. He said he and his wife had always thought of Wilmington as a place they’d like to move, and added that the principal at Ashley is from his hometown.
