Head Coach- Don Vandygriff


Don Vandygriff

Athletic Director

Head Football Coach

Welcome Coach Vandygriff to the Eagle Family. Coach Vandygriff has spent the last 3 years at Cedar Shoals High School in Athens Ga. where he was the Associate Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator. Coach Vandygriff is entering his 25th season as a College and High School Coach. Through the years Coach Vandygiff has coached in three state championships, 2 semifinals, and multiple quarterfinal rounds. He has 1 state championship and 9 region championships. Coach Vandygriff started this coaching journey at his Alma Mater, Union College, KY., where he received his B.S. and M.A.   While playing football at Union College, he was an All-Mid South Conference Defensive Lineman and Honorable Mention All-American. Coach Vandygriff had the opportunity to learn from multiple coaches along the way, with the likes of Roy Kidd (E.K.U.), Mike Springston (WVU TECH), Tony Gibson (N.C. STATE), Roger Holmes (DUBLIN), and Leroy Ryals (CEDAR SHOALS). Through those experiences Coach Vandygriff's philosophy has been to “mentor, develop, foster, produce, and value every player’s athletic ability, academic ability, character, and work ethic.” Why Football? Football is an example of a journey in life. In life, you have to plan, practice (making good decisions/getting better daily) and execute. It’s essential that student-athletes learn to connect life lessons to their football journey and look beyond where they are. Coach Vandygriff couldn’t do it without his loyal family including his wife Penny, daughters, Tabitha, Misty, and Karla and sons, Hovie, Tyler, and Chris.
