Dayton, TN — Jeff Hill was recently named as head coach of the Dayton City School Football team, replacing Paige Hughes who stepped down due to personal issues back in November after leading the revived Dayton City School Football Program for five years. Dayton City School officials announced during Monday’s school board meeting, they would promote Hill.
Jeff has been offensive coordinator for the Sweat Bees for the past two seasons and this will make for good transition for the program. Before becoming the offensive coordinator, Jeff was President and also coached in the Dayton Little Eagle program.
Jeff played football at the old Rhea Central Elementary School back in middle school and played tight end and linebacker. Jeff is a lieutenant at Dayton Police Department.
Dayton City School Athletic Director and Principal Chris Tallent said, “We are excited to have Jeff on board. We liked what we saw as offensive coordinator and are looking forward to getting everything setup for the next football season.”
Jeff Hill said, “I am excited and humbled to be the new head coach at Dayton City School. I have a love for the kids and the program.”
“I have enjoyed working with Paige Hughes the last two years. I consider him a friend and I appreciate what he meant to this program over the last five years.”
“I am working now of filling my coaching staff and will in the future look at filling a schedule for next year.”
“We will get someone in place to begin working soon with players for strength and conditioning.”
“We lost some very good players to high school but I feel we have a very good nucleus coming back next year. I am excited about the 2019 season.”
“The fans, players’ families and booster club has been a great help to the coaching staff. The dayton city fans travel very well and support the team like no other I know. Many times we had more fans than the home team.”
