GAINESVILLE -- Chestatee High School Principal Suzanne Jarrard has announced that she will recommend Ben Corley to the Hall County Board of Education to fill the position of Assistant Principal/Athletic Director at the school.<br />
He will replace Stan Williams, who recently resigned his position for personal reasons. Mr. Corley, a 1991 Graduate of North Hall High School, holds current state certification in several areas, including education leadership, health/physical education, and science. He has been employed by the Hall County School District (HCSD) since 2012 at West Hall High School as a science teacher, assistant football coach, and assistant track coach.<br />
Corley's career in teaching and coaching spans nineteen (19) years involving multiple experiences in leading high school sports programs, which includes serving as head coach in football (two years at Winder-Barrow), head coach in basketball (four years as girls coach at Winder-Barrow; three years boys coach at Union County), and head coach in golf (1 year at Winder-Barrow). He has also served as assistant AD (2 years at Clarke-Central).<br />
"I am excited that Ben will be joining our War Eagle family. He brings with him the total package," Principal Jarrard said. "His vast athletic experiences including being a head coach of multiple sports along with his academic knowledge as a science teacher are the perfect combination to help move Chestatee forward."

If experience is king in the playoffs, then is perhaps Buford, the No. 1 team in Class AAAA and considered by many to be the class of the entire state -- and ranked in the top 10 nationally -- the underdog in Saturday’s championship series against Whitewater?
While title runs and the excitement of a busy spring sports season has stolen most of the headlines over the past few weeks, another group of dedicated athletes have been hard at work -- aiming for the headlines of this fall.
