Briarwood Football- 400 Wins

I was privileged to be a part of a historic milestone for Briarwood Christian School last night where the football program registered it's 400th win. That is an average of 7 wins a year for the 51 year history of the football program.

I also count it an honor to have been a part of 244 of those 400 wins over a 25 year span and can attest that the hard work and effort of everyone involved has been a treasure to witness. Each win was special because few people understand how difficult it is to win even one game in the state of Alabama. I’m thankful to be a Lion!

If anyone wants to learn or understand more about how this program was started or has grown, I highly encourage you to take time and listen to the podcasts we produced last year.

I have decided on this post to list them in chronological order: These are SoundCloud links but you can also find these on Apple, Spotify, and iHeart Radio

In my 25 years of being at Briarwood, we have seen highs and lows, state championships and 'losing' seasons. My time there, we have been 244-86- so I am a blessed man!

You can also learn a lot from visiting the Briarwood page at the Alabama High School Football Historical Society.

We also have videos on Vimeo here;

And a FB page:

Too many wonderful people and memories! Thank you Lord for blessing me to participate in this wonderful ministry and hop I get to keep going!
