Coach Beckett has just completed his fifth year as head football coach and athletic director. The small Talladega County school has been short on coaches but big on character with Beckett. He has rebuilt the athletic program, including football. His squad was 0-10 in his first season but has now posted back to back winning seasons. His positive attitude and concern for students is a large part of his success. “He is a father to the fatherless and a mentor to those who need a mentor,” said Winterboro principal Emily Harris.
The awards will be presented at next month’s AHSAA Summer Conference.
