Laney’s Lemuel Lackey is off to Evans.
Lackey, the Wildcats’ head football coach for the past eight seasons, is Evans’ new coach. Lackey takes over for Marty Jackson, who left to be the athletic director at Grovetown. Before Lackey was Laney’s head coach, he was an assistant at the school under coach Eric Parker.
“Leaving Laney is always tough, just simply because you’re talking 18 years,” Lackey said. “I spent so much time there that I started to coach the kids of some of the young men I had early on in my career there. I have so many, what I call, memories of Laney.”
