Tonight we welcomed into the program for the first time the lead man of the Summerville football program not named McKissick. Joe Call has now taken over the Green Wave program, a proud program that hasn’t had a change of any sort at the top in 60+ seasons since John McKissick started coaching at the school.
The program won’t stray too far from its roots however, Call is McKissick’s grandson. He played at the school under McKissick’s tutelage, and has been coaching within the program for some time.
Tonight coach Call discussed the pressures of having to follow in the footsteps of the winningest football coach ever, at any level. He also discussed his similarities and differences in philosophies from his grandfather, the roster he’s inheriting at Summerville for the 2015 campaign, and more.
