Football Takes Home Three Awards at Macon Touchdown Club Annual Jamboree

MACON, Ga. – The First Presbyterian Day School football program took home three awards at the Macon Touchdown Club’s Annual Jamboree on Thursday, Feb. 28 at The Methodist Children’s Home.

Head football coach Greg Moore was named the Area’s Coach of the Year for the 2012 season. Moore led the Red & Black to its second straight GHSA playoff berth.

Furthermore, Moore took the Vikings to victory in its first round playoff game against Brookstone, winning 49-33 and gaining the school’s first football playoff win in school history as a member of the GHSA.

The Viking head man picked up his 100th career victory in the 2012 season as well on Oct. 19, a 42-14 routing of Hancock Central. Moore’s career record stands at 102-57.

“Coach Moore has done an outstanding job leading us into the playoffs despite the fact that we played one of the toughest schedules in the state,” defensive coordinator Rennie Atkinson said. “What people don’t know is all he did to develop these guys as young men that will actually mean more to them over a lifetime than the wins.”

“I am honored to be a part of his staff because of all the things he does as a head coach,” Atkinson added.

Senior wide receiver Scott McCormick took home the Scholarship Award, just one of four players in the county to receive such an honor.

Kicker Conner Albright was named the Special Teams Player of the Year. The senior nailed 53 of 54 PAT’s in his senior campaign along with six field goals, his longest coming from 46 yards.

“Our entire program is proud of Scott and Connor!,” Moore said. “Both have taken the gifts that God has blessed them with and used those to do great things. We thank the Touchdown Club for acknowledging their hard work and efforts – in the classroom and on the field.”

FPD finished the 2012 season at 7-5, advancing to second round of the GHSA Class A Private School Playoffs.

The First Presbyterian Day School Department of Athletics, home to multiple region and state championships in both the GISA and GHSA, strives to build the student athlete both in the playing arena and the classroom while continuing to educate and equip students to change the world for God’s glory. Now a member of the GHSA, the Vikings have continued to provide FPD athletes, coaches, fans and spectators a positive, Christian environment on a daily basis.
