Veteran coach Trey Woolf hired to lead Indians

The Seminole County Indians have a new head football coach. The Seminole County Board of Education voted Monday night to hire former Early County football head coach and athletic director Trey Woolf to lead the Indian football program.

Woolf retired from Early County High School in  Blakely,  in June of 2017 after 27 years with the school system, including the last 16 as its head coach. A graduate of Early County High School and Valdosta State, Woolf began his 32-year coaching career when Seminole County head coach Walt Landing called and asked him to join the Indians’ staff as an assistant football and baseball coach in 1986. From 1988-89 he was the assistant football coach, assistant basketball coach and head baseball coach at Fannin County. In 1990 he joined the Early County Bobcat  staff as its assistant football coach, assistant baseball coach and head golf coach. He became the Early County head football coach in 2000 and added the title of the school’s athletic director in 2005

Woolf is the winningest and longest tenured coach in Bobcat football history. He guided Early County to 105 wins, taking eight of his 16 teams to the state playoffs. His 2001 team reached the Class AA state championship game.

After a year off in retirement Woolf took over the Daleville, Alabama football program in 2018. As Daleville’s head football coach and athletic director, he guided the team to a 6-5 record and was selected The Southeast Sun/Daleville Sun-Courier Coach of the Year for his playoff appearing efforts.

“I am excited to come to Seminole County,” Woolf said. “It is a good opportunity. They have a great administration and great tradition. I am an Indian now and my blood is quickly turning to  that bright shade of Seminole County green.”

“We are very pleased to be adding Trey Woolf to Seminole County’s  athletic program.  Trey will be coming to Seminole County with an established record of success on and off the field. He brings a great deal of experience and we look forward to his leadership in our program,” commented Seminole County School Superintendent Brinson Register.

Coach Woolf will be reporting to Seminole County as soon as possible to begin the transition and start working with the staff and players.

Woolf and his wife Pam have one daughter, Aliss who is a Junior at Georgia Southern University.

Woolf succeeds former Indians head football coach Wes Williams who announced his retirement from the position in April.
