High School Coach of the Week: Jimmy Fletcher

Coach: Jimmy Fletcher

School: West Brunswick High School

Location: Shallotte, N.C.

Career Highlights: In eight years as head coach, Fletcher has led the Trojans to seven playoff appearances and was named Waccamaw Conference Coach of the Year in 2009. Additionally, 25 of his student-athletes have played at the collegiate level and one at the professional level.

Community Service: An active member of New Beginning Community Church and the South Brunswick Rotary Club, Fletcher encourages his student-athletes to participate in community initiatives to help them better appreciate both their community and the opportunity that football has afforded them. The football team delivers Thanksgiving meals to underprivileged families and assists local church work crews - repairing and rebuilding homes for the less fortunate.

Quote: "I have to say that the most joy I receive from coaching does not come on the field. It comes when a player tells me that they want to be a football coach or when they call me 15 years later to tell me what a difference I made in their lives. That is the reason I coach football."
