Jan. 16: Ron Lewis resigns as BCHS football coach after 12 seasons on the job. The Redskins were 1-9 in 2009 and 28-92 during Lewis’ tenure. “I’ve just decided to follow other professional goals right now,” he said. “I should have my doctorate in leadership in June, and I’m hoping to move into administration.” Lewis also said he would step down as athletic director at the end of the school year.
“It’s no secret that Coach Lewis’ record was not stellar during his time here, but he has built a good athletic program,” BCHS principal Harold Roach said. “We’ve done a lot of good things in his time here.
