CHS football coach assists with track
The Clinton Blaze elementary school athletics program gives the student-athletes in the city the unique opportunity to compete in a school-sanctioned program.
The Blaze program offers elementary school students the chance to compete in cross country, boys and girls basketball, archery, bowling, tennis, swimming and track and field.
The program also has a dance team and will add a cheerleading squad and a color guard when school resumes in the fall.
The program, the brainchild of Clinton City Schools Director of Schools Kelly Johnson and CCS Athletics Director E.T. Stamey, has garnered support from the community.
The Blaze doesn’t have football, but that hasn’t stopped Clinton High School football Coach Darell Keith from getting involved and lending a hand to the program as he’s assisted with running track. meets this spring.
And for Keith, the Blaze is about more than sports.
