Rossville hires coach
Rossville Christian Academy announces the hiring of Johnny Allen as the school’s new head football coach.
Allen is currently the defensive coordinator at Briarcrest Christian. Prior to his stint at BCS he served in the same capacity at White Station. Allen follows Perry Bailey, who will continue at RCA in his duties of athletic director and varsity basketball coach.
Major Wright, head coach at Briarcrest, believes Allen will have great success at RCA.
“Rossville Christian is getting a strong Christian man who operates solely on the principles found in the Bible,” Wright said. “His role in the success we have had at White Station and BCS has been immense. He has been in charge of all defensive and special teams duties in the past due to my level of trust and confidence in him.”
Allen is already planning for the upcoming season and the future of RCA football.
“My family and I are excited about being a part of the RCA family,” he said. “I am looking forward to the opportunity in building relationships with my players and coaches, and excited about establishing a community that will accomplish our goals as one. I have been very fortunate to be a part of some successful football programs the past 10 years, and will draw upon those experiences in developing the future.”
Mike Coggins, headmaster at RCA, said, “We feel that after a very thorough search process that God has sent us the man to run our football program. I expect Coach Allen to be a positive influence in all facets of our school.”
Coach Allen and his wife Amy have two children, Quinn and Elizabeth.
