Story from WSET-TV - 4/11/13
LYNCHBURG – Brookville High School football coach Jeff Woody is leaving the
program and heading north to take the same position at Monticello High
School in Charlottesville.
He will sign the necessary paperwork Friday afternoon and will have an
introductory news conference at 3 p.m. He said he will inform the Brookville
players of his decision today (Thursday) at 2:10 p.m.
Woody, a 2001 graduate of Hampden-Sydney College, has turned down job offers
in the past couple of years from Louisa County and Charlottesville. Upon his
decisions to return to Brookville, he coached the Bees to 28 straight wins
and back to back state championships in 2011 and 2012. He also led them to
the 2008 state title game, a 50-46 loss to James Monroe.
In the past three seasons, Brookville is 40-2 and
overall, in eight years at Brookville, Woody had an 81-22 record. Along with
the two state titles, he led the Bees to four Seminole District
championships and five Region III Division 3 championships.
Woody, who began as an assistant coach in 2001, said he plans to take his
spread offense up Route 29. That offense averaged 42 points a game in 2012.
Woody has coached a number of Division One college players including Logan
Thomas (Virginia Tech), Zach McCray (Virginia Tech), Devin Bolling (Wake
Forest), and Korren Kirven (Alabama).
Monticello last won a state championship in 2007 when they defeated
Richlands 35-22 at Liberty University. The Mustangs went 10-3 last season,
losing to Kettle Run in the playoffs.
Brookville athletic director Larry Kidd has already begun his search for
Woody's replacement. Sources have informed ABC 13 Sports that current
assistant Jamar Lovelace is one candidate. Lovelace played for Woody during
Woody's first year at Brookville but Lovelace, who coached defensive backs,
could join Woody at Monticello.
