THOMASVILLE — A familiar face is returning to lead the Brookwood football program.

Four years after leaving the Warriors, coach Shane Boggs is ready to lead the GISA school again.

“Once the job was open, I had great interest. I don't want to deny my interest because it was high,” Boggs said. “I had six great years there. I would expect the experience to be even better now that I've got three kids that can enjoy Brookwood.”

The Tennessee High and former Brookwood coach was hired to replace Robert East as the Warriors' football chief. East resigned last month.

“We are fortunate to have someone of Shane's caliber returning to Brookwood,” said Heeth Varnedoe IV, chair of the Athletics Committee, in a news release. “Football coaches have a tremendous impact on the lives of our young men, and we know from experience that Shane is not only a proven winner but, more importantly, a person of high character.”
