It really is; I loved scrimaging there when I played.

I figured he'd go eventually here since he's been coaching for 18 years as an HC but very late in the process to happen. Just hope they make a good hire; I would hate to see Alleghany downgrade badly.

I like Sessoms a lot; very pastoral with his offense but he got a ton out of his kids every year. Without him North Stokes probably woulda never had a winning season again. He took his time and made that place into something. Alleghany too. Much respect for him.

If he's retiring I hope he relaxes and enjoys himself

According to NC Preps Alleghany made their hire. They picked Noah Lyon.

Chris know anything about him or this hire? Someone on NCP said he has been at AL Brown. Not sure if is the same one or not though.

AD at Kannapolis. He's been on that staff for years as the D.C., he's also been at Richmond as an assistant. He and his wife are from Sparta, this is a home run hire for Alleghany.
