“I can beat the opponents in the fourth quarter if my guys are in shape,” School Principal Dr. Robert Peters quotes Guy Hathorn. Peters recently hired Hathorn to coach the Rebels football squad next season.
Peters said Hathorn will be in town about June 10th. “He has tremendous experience as a football coach,” said Peters. He has prior coach and assistant coach experience and Peters said, “He is an expert in 8-man football, the brand of football we play at Riverdale.”
In addition to his coaching experience, Hathorn is a retired veteran with three tours in Vietnam and two in Germany to his credit. He finished his Army career with 10 years at Fort Polk.
Peters told The Journal that Hathorn stresses a good offense, a strong defense, and strength and conditioning. In addition to his athlete team duties, Hathorn will teach History and Social Studies.
