Ledford’s Adams signs up for double duty
Chris Adams may want to consider buying a second whistle.
Adams, Ledford’s head football coach since 2010, added a second title on Monday. Adams took the job as Panthers’ head baseball coach.
“It’s going to be double duty,” Adams said. “But I love to coach and I get to coach two sports I enjoy at a school I love. I’m really excited about this opportunity.”
Adams is entering his 17th year of coaching. He spent two years at Central Davidson before coming to Ledford in 1999.
He also teaches health and physical education at Ledford in addition to his coaching duties.
Adams replaces Kemp Smith as the Panthers’ head baseball coach. Smith left to take an assistant principal post at East Davidson.
“Kemp and I have coached together for a long time and we’re good friends,” Adams said. “That should make for a pretty smooth transition.”
