Greensboro, N.C.--Northern Guilford High School has proudly named North and South Carolina football coaching legend, Johnny Roscoe as their new head football coach.

After a short retirement stint of one year, Coach Roscoe brings a resume highlighting over forty years of football coaching experience back to the stadium named after him.

At Northern, he compiled a record of 65-6 and three consecutive 3AA state championships. Under Roscoe, the Nighthawks had won 29 straight games prior to his retirement.

The administration cited Johnny Roscoe's core values as one of the major reasons behind the selection.

His commitment to teaching the fundamentals of the game, character development, and ability to establish a feeling of family and school pride within his team and the entire Northern community were a few qualities that stood out from the other well qualified candidates.
