Funeral service for Coach Brodie set
Brodie, 60, died at around 5:30 p.m. Friday at Archbold Memorial Hospital in Thomasville. Brodie was hospitalized earlier this week after suffering from what appeared to be a stroke, but in fact, was a hemorrhage from cancerous tumors. He had been battling prostate cancer for the past ten years Brodie grew to legendary status in Tifton after serving as Tift's football coach from 1977 to 1994. During his tenure in Tifton, his Blue Devils won the 1983 state championship title and played in state and playoff games numerous times. Prior to his taking the Tift position, he led the Central-Macon Chargers to the AAA state championship. Brodie leaves a legacy richer than merely football. Coaches and former players of other sports will tell how Brodie always supported athletics throughout the school. During his tenure, Blue Devil teams won basketball and softball championships, among otherrs. He is reknowned for maintaining excellent field and facilities and spearheaded the building of the track and field facilities and the Andy Summers tennis complex. He was a hands-on builder as well as a hands-on coach, weilding a saw and a paintbrush with the same alacrity as he directed football plays. In addition, he served as a father figure to many of his players. He is survived by his wife, Ginger, his son Brooks, and his daughters, Stacy and Gena.
