SAMANTHA, AL– The Northside Senior High School Rams didn’t have to look very long or hard to discover its following head football coach, as the school verified on Wednesday that assistant football coach Robbie Jones has actually been promoted and will now lead the program.
This complies with the retirement of Chris Hilliker, who stepped down at the end of the school year as the winningest coach in the program’s history.
” I believe it was simply God’s job,” Jones informed Spot of the promotion. “This is such an unique location, the brightest neighborhood around. I do not have words to define individuals here.”
Initially hired in 2007 by former Northside football instructor John Montgomery, Jones has actually been a regular face on the sidelines for the Rams for greater than a years.
Birthed in Scottsboro, Jones was a mentoring trainee while a student at the University of Alabama and learned the ropes under Hilliker at Hale Area Secondary School, prior to eventually making a decision to remain in Samantha when Hilliker was employed to replace Montgomery in 2012.
Looking ahead to the future, Jones claimed he hopes to build on the foundation and culture established by Hilliker, which saw the Rams go from a football cellar-dweller to a bonafide powerhouse during a decade.
” We’re simply mosting likely to maintain doing what we’re doing,” Jones stated. “Our offseason program is extremely intense. However the system we have, it altered the whole culture and also Coach Hilliker brought that with him when he came. We really have a football program now.”
