Jeff Herron has been hired as the new head football coach at Prince Avenue Christian, the school announced on Wednesday.
Herron formerly coached at Oconee County High School and most recently in Camden County.
“We are very excited to be able get Jeff Herron to come in and take our football program to the next level,” said Wolverine Athletic Director Richard Ricketts, in a released statement. “Coach Herron is very respected throughout the state of Georgia, not just because of his incredible record as a football coach, but also because of his reputation for leading a program with class and character. I am excited for our school and community to get the opportunity to work with Coach Herron and to get to know his wonderful family.”
Herron will replace Mark Farriba, who is leaving at the end of the school year to take a position at Stratford Academy in Macon.
“My family and I are very excited to be coming to Prince Avenue Christian School,” Herron stated in the news release posted on the school's website. “We were first attracted to the location, but once we visited the school, met many people, and came to understand all that Prince Avenue stands for, we were very impressed. We saw that this would be a fantastic opportunity. Coach Farriba has done a tremendous job with the football program, and I hope that I will be able to continue the great success and maintain the tradition of winning that has been established in such a short time.”
