Brian Washington named new coach at Paris High School


Recommended Posts

The last time Brian Washington was walking the sidelines as the Greyhounds head football coach, he was leading Paris to a 7-4 record and a first round exit in the state playoffs. Little did he know that his last team of 2006 would be the last Greyhound team to have a winning record. Since his departure, the Hounds’ record over the past five years is 6-46 and that included a 22-game losing streak that was snapped this past season.

When JJ Everage announced that he was stepping down from the position he has held the past four seasons, the Paris Schools Administration went to work quickly in finding a new coach. A lot of applicants applied but the School System, with the help of players, former coaches and alumni voices, knew exactly what type of coach they were looking for to lead their program into the future. As they looked, they didn’t have to go too far to find him.

Last week, Paris High School Principal Jami Dailey made it official by announcing that former Greyhound Coach Brian Washington will be the team’s next football coach.

Good luck to Paris! I couldn't believe how far things had slid there since I was in school. (Mid 80's) They used to dress out about seventy five or one hundred kids...came in three or four buses to Berea(district rivals) and would wear down class A opponents with the two teams O and D which was pretty much unheard of for most Class A teams back then. They were number one in the state most of the time and winning championships. At one point my senior year if I remember correctly, the district consisted of Paris ranked number one, Harrodsburg was three, Mercer County was five, Garrard County was like tenth and Berea was thirteenth in class A. Hard to believe that Mercer was class A now isn't it?
