Evan Davis is the new head football coach at Armwood High School. Davis, who is an Armwood alum, has spent the last seven seasons as the Hawks offensive coordinator.
Davis takes over for long-time coach Sean Callahan, who resigned last month after the team’s spring game.
Davis told the Tampa Bay Times, “Obviously I would have liked to take over under different circumstances. It’s unfortunate that Coach Callahan had to step away so quickly. But I feel confident that we have everything in place to keep things going.”
2017 was supposed to be Callahan’s final season at Armwood, but called it quits earlier because of a health concern, according to reports.
Armwood, which began last season in the High School Football America National Top 50 rankings, is expecting 2017 to be a special years with a senior class that has plenty of talent, including running Brian Snead, who has given his verbal to Ohio State. Snead is ranked as the 19th best overall prospect in the state, according to 247Sports.com’s composite rankings.
