For the 32nd straight year the Palmetto Touchdown Club held it's annual jamboree last night to recognize the lowcountry's best football players and coaches. Featured speaker for the event was Georgia Bulldog head coach Mark Richt.
Taking top honors as the Coach of the Year was Wando's Bob Hayes. In just his 3rd year at the helm, Coach Hayes brought the Warriors from an 2-9 season in 2000 to playing for the region title against his former boss Ray Stackley and the Stratford Knights in 2002. No doubt the Wando program will continue to improve under his leadership.
