Four Questions with Creekside coach Will Rogers
Will Rogers, Creekside
1. What is the most memorable game you’ve been a part of as a player or coach?“I have been blessed to have a couple of memorable games since I have been coaching. A couple that come to mind are defeating Camden County while at Valdosta High School in 2014 when we were both undefeated and highly ranked teams, and defeating a very talented Northside-Warner Robins team in 2010 while at Whitewater High School. [Northside was 10-0 and ranked No. 1.] Most recently at Creekside, our game against Miami Norland [a 9-7 victory in the 2016 opener] was a very memorable game as well.”
2. Which high school coach would you want your son to play for, and why?“A couple of coaches that I would love for my son to play for are Amos McCreary, former head coach at Whitewater High, and Alan Rodemaker, current head coach at Valdosta High. I have a great deal of respect for both of these men and what they stand for. I think they develop young men first and football players second.”
3. What is your pet peeve as a coach or favorite saying/motto?“It’s a great day to be great!”
4. Which GHSA policy or high school football rule would you most like to see changed?“One of the main things that I always wanted to be changed about high school football in Georgia has already been addressed. That was to play another opponent for spring games.”
