|Davis to lead Ferriday spring|
Ferriday assistant football coaches James Davis, C.C. Cummings and Walter Johnson will conduct spring practice for Ferriday High as the Trojans continue seeking a head football coach.
Applications were being accepted through today (Wednesday).
The new coach will be replacing Freddie Harrison, who accepted the head coaching job at Washington-Marion in Lake Charles.
Harrison's assistant coaches at Ferriday, Eddie White and Damien Huren, both followed Harrison to Washington-Marion.
Davis said Ferriday will begin spring drills on April 26.
"We'll go through the spring and conduct work in the weight room until a new coach is named," Davis said.
Davis said Ferriday will scrimmage Delhi Charter on May 14 in Delhi.
Davis, who is also assistant principal at Ferriday High, said with 19 starters returning the coaches will focus on fundamentals.
"We're not going to spend a lot of time on offense and defense schemes, we're going to keep it generic because the new guy will have his own offense and defense," Davis said. "But this is a veteran ball club, so we really don't need to start from the beginning."
Davis, who took over as head basketball coach of the Trojans this past season at the midway point after Glenn Henderson resigned, said he hopes a new coach will be named, but said he will be available if needed.
"If they asked me, I probably would," Davis said. "I told Freddie whoever gets this opportunity is going to have seasonsed, quality athletes. These kids are hungry and looking for bigger and better things."
Ferriday finished 8-4 last season, falling to Farmerville in the second round of the playoffs.
"Losing two assistants as well as the head coach hurts us," Davis said. "It's hard getting assistant coaches in this area because of the pay."
