Head Coach Jason Godbee

First Presbyterian Day School is pleased to announce that Jason Godbee has been named the Head Baseball coach for the 2019-20 school year. Jason arrived at FPD in the fall of 2017 as an assistant in our baseball and football programs after completing successful head coaching terms at Landmark Christian and Whitefield Academy.

“We’re excited to have Jason assume this role for us,” said FPD Athletic Director, Greg Moore. “He has quickly established strong rapport with our families, and I believe the students respond very positively to his direction. He understands our mission, and I have no doubt that he will be highly successful, just as he has been in other positions before joining us here.”

Godbee, the school’s Dean of Students, begins his 14th year in coaching, and he will continue to work as an assistant coach in the Vikings’ football program in the Fall.  Some of Jason’s career highlights as a head coach include multiple playoff appearances, three Final Four’s, one State Runner-up finish, and the opportunity to work as a summer league coach in the Northwoods developmental league, the home of many eventual major league baseball players.

“I’m humbled and excited about leading the young men in this program, on and off the field, and in continuing the rich tradition of baseball at FPD,” said Godbee. “It’s all about the players and getting them to reach their full potential in baseball and life. I want to say thanks to our Board of Trustees, Joe McDaniel, and Greg Moore for allowing me this opportunity.”
