Rick Darlington is the new head football coach at Enterprise High School. Darlington, who led Apopka to three Florida high school football championships (2014, 2012, 2001), was hired Thursday.
Darlington told the Dothan Eagle:
“I think my purpose is to be a coach. I’m thankful I get to do it here. It’s not about the game. We just use the game of football to build men, and that’s all I’ve thought is important, and if we can build men and build character, we’re going to win a lot of games (and) hopefully win some championships.”
Darlington replaces David Faulkner who resigned after seven seasons and a 38-38 record. Darlington owns 214 lifetime victories with stops at Apopka, Valdosta (Georgia) and Eustis (Florida).
