The Georgia Athletic Directors Association has honored Phil Jones, the founding head coach of Shorter Hawks football who had a storied career in high school athletics before moving to the college level. Jones, who died Dec. 26 at age 74, was inducted posthumously into the association’s Hall of Fame. Remembering the Coach
Another friend of local sports: It was the second time in two years a local sports administrator was honored in such a way. In 2019, Bob Stinchcomb — a fixture at Darlington and several other state high schools before joining Shorter who died at age 59 in April 2018. — was admitted to the hall. Remembering Stinch.
