Sonoraville coach resigns to join Barden at Stephens County 

By Todd Holcomb

Roger Gentry, who led Sonoraville of Calhoun to its first state-playoff berth in 2013, has resigned to become offensive coordinator at Stephens County under new coach Frank Barden, the Times Free Press of Chattanooga reports.

Gentry was 9-22 in three seasons, including 4-7 in 2013. Gentry had been offensive coordinator at Sonoraville before replacing his brother-in-law, Chuck King, as the head coach in 2011.

Barden became Stephens County’s head coach this off-season after 210 seasons as the head man at Cartersville.

I did not know there were teams before leather helmets.  We need to get Coach Barden to speak at our TD Club banquet.  We would love to know how it was 'back in the day' and have the opportunity to ask him plenty of questions.  Interesting.

If Barden was at Cartersville for 210 season and the article states then how old is this SOB?
