GHSF Daily asked Georgia head coaches to answer these four questions. We’ll report from a different head coach each day.
Lee Hannah, Baldwin
1. Who is/was the most influential person in your coaching career? “Rodney Walker. He taught me that nothing beats character, discipline, and hard work.” (Hannah was an assistant at Sandy Creek under Walker, who retired with more than 300 victories.)
2. Who is the best Georgia player you ever faced? “Takeo Spikes. I faced him in 1993 while in high school at Louisville High. He was a man amongst boys and played the game with relentless abandon!”
3. What is the best team you ever faced as a coach? “Creekside Seminoles. I faced them in 2005 in the region championship while at Sandy Creek. They had a young man by the name of Eric Berry.”
4. If you were Gary Phillips, the new head of the GHSA, what would be the first rule that you would try to change? “One change I would recommend is a player not be penalized for participating when his helmet comes off during a play.”
