How are the former RMHS assistants faring?

Former Rocky Mount assistant Chris Lee is in his third season as head coach at Louisburg High. He and his team are off to an 0-1 start with a makeup game with Ravenscroft set for Monday.

Since Rocky Mount's football program currently has five former assistants who are now high school head coaches, I figured we'd check in on them every two weeks or so to see how their seasons are going. 

And after two weeks of the 2011 campaign, only one of them is 2-0 and two of them are still undefeated.

Here is how they stand after Week 2 of their respective seasons! 

Alan Hess, Crawford County High (IN)

Week 1 – Lost to North Harrison, 26-21
Week 2 – Lost to Paoli, 75-7 (0-2) 

Mark Hoover, Central Davidson High

Week 1 – Lost to Carrboro, 47-36
Week 2 – Lost to Randleman, 50-40 (0-2) 

Chris Lee, Louisburg High

Week 1 – Lost to Southern Vance, 26-10
Week 2 – Ravenscroft, Monday 

Dickie Schock, Rocky Mount High

Week 1 – Defeated Bunn, 30-0
Week 2 – Ties Bertie, 22-22 (1-0-1) 

Chad Smith, Easley High (SC)

Week 1 – Defeated West Oak, 70-0
Week 2 – Defeated Daniel, 22-21 (2-0)

In my research to find out the names of other former RMHS assistants who went on to become a head coach, this is what I have come up with so far. Listed will be the assistant, then the school (s) name where they were head coaches.

Dudley Whitley - Rocky Mount
Walt Wiggins - Rocky Mount
Ray Durham - Jacksonville, Rocky Mount
Henry Trevathan - Wilson Fike
Shelton Chesson - Whiteville
Phil Harris - Washington
George Kelley - Rocky Mount
Brent David - Winston-Salem Carver
