Metter’s continuous fight to travel deep into the playoffs has the Tigers’ fans filled with hope for the future, and the fountain of this optimism stems from the efforts of Metter’s second-year head coach, Rodney Garvin, who was named the 2019 2-AA Region Coach of the Year during the end of the season region meeting.
During his first year on the job, Coach Garvin moved the Tigers to their first winning season since 2015. This season Garvin helped the Tigers earn their first region championship and playoff appearances since 2003.
Garvin joined the Tigers with 22 years of coaching experience, including 11 years as the defensive coordinator for Vidalia High School.
His coaching includes an emphasis on the importance of weight training and developing accountable young men who understand that winners must always work hard for their glory.
