GREENSBORO– Northern Guilford High School has named its new head football coach, according to a press release from the school.
Northern Guilford has tapped Johnny Roscoe to return to the school as head coach.
After a short retirement stint of one year, Roscoe brings a resume highlighting over forty years of football coaching experience back to the stadium named after him. He had coached in South Carolina for many years before coming to North Carolina.
Roscoe returns to the program that he built from the ground up in 2007 at the school’s inception. At Northern, he compiled a record of 65-6 and three consecutive NCHSAA 3-AA state championships. Under Roscoe, the Nighthawks had won 29 straight games prior to his retirement.
According to the release, the administration cited Roscoe’s core values as one of the major reasons behind the selection. His commitment to teaching the fundamentals of the game, character development, and ability to establish a feeling of family and school pride within his team and the entire Northern community were a few qualities that stood out from the other well qualified candidates.
