The Jim Satterfield Middle School Jr. Jackets have a new head football coach in Hayden Williams.

Williams has been elevated to the top spot after serving as an assistant under Matt Dyer last season.

“I am excited to take over as head coach of the JSMS Yellow Jackets football program,” Williams said. “Coach Dyer put in a lot of time and hard work last season to help improve the program and I look forward to building upon that. We have a lot of work to do, installing a new offense and getting these young men up to speed with everything.”

Jamal Carter will serve as an assistant coach.

“Coach Carter and I will work tirelessly to get the team ready for the upcoming season,” Williams said. “I look forward to us having a great year!”

The Jr. Jackets will open the 2019 season on Aug. 8 at home against Smith County.

Golf tournament: The annual Yellow Jackets Golf Scramble has been set for Saturday, July 20 at 8 a.m. at Long Hollow Golf Course in Gallatin.
