Robert “Robby” Brown has nothing but excitement for coaching St. James High School’s 2014 football season.

The Clemson graduate from Gaffney took the position as interim head coach in late March. Although Brown did not apply for the position, he accepted when the offer was made.

Brown came into this position following the resignation of head football coach Mark Fisher.

Brown feels no pressure in wake of Fisher’s departure but expresses excitement and believes it is a privilege and an honor being the new coach.

“If we do it the right way, everything will work out fine. But, I’m excited to be here,” Brown said after the team’s first practice of the season last week.

Brown embarks on his 25th season coaching football. Brown’s accomplishments include coaching at numerous levels, coaching offensive line, instructing weight training, and teaching, just to list a few.

Brown is confident in the upcoming season and the team players.

“We tell the team, ‘We are going to be sound and simple. We are going to believe in the system that we have. We are never going to cost the team,’ ” Brown said.

Brown is not the only new coach on Horry County territory. North Myrtle Beach’s Blair Hardin and coach Marc Morris of Carolina Forest both face their first season as coaches for these schools.
