Legendary Rhea County Football Coach – Bill Horton, had a great impact not only on the players he coached, but an entire community. Coach Horton instilled Christian values into his players and stressed the importance of family, character, and leadership.
For everyone who had the good fortune of knowing Coach Horton, this video will serve as a sweet memory. Everyone else should find it as a testimony to what Rhea County Football is all about. Special thanks to WDEF.COM – News Channel 12, for providing such a great service for Rhea County in pulling this clip out of their archive.
I truly hope to see the “12th Man” come alive in the 4th quarter this season. Let’s get behind our coaches and our team and do our part to keep Rhea County Football tradition alive. Hope to see everyone tomorrow night at “Bill Horton Field”, 7:30pm. The Golden Eagles will be hosting the Coffee County – Red Raiders, for our season opener.
