Childress legacy lives on in players, coaches
As the players marched the concrete mile between the locker room and the practice field, Childress made his way to the game field.
He took a quick glance around him then looked at the sky. In an awe-inspiring moment, the rain ceased and the clouds folded themselves under the blanket of blue that is the sky.
Practice went as planned, or so the legend goes.
In an area where high school football is a religion, coach Childress is pastor emeritus.
