Tracy to coach at Woodford Co.

Published 12:00 am Friday, June 13, 2003

For the last couple of years Chris Tracy has been splitting his time between two schools.

He won’t be doing that anymore.

Tracy, a 1989 graduate of Franklin County, has been named the head football coach at Woodford County High School and has resigned as FCHS wrestling coach. He’d been the Flyers’ wrestling coach for the past five years.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” Tracy said of his first job as a head football coach. “It’s going to be a good experience. We have two scrimmages against George Rogers Clark and John Hardin, both 4A schools, so we’ll get to know something right off the bat.”

Tracy has spent the last two years as a teacher and assistant football coach at Bryan Station. Before going to Bryan Station he was an assistant football coach for four years at Franklin County, and he also served a four-year stint as an assistant football coach at Kentucky Wesleyan, his alma mater.

“As much as I love wrestling, I really love football,” Tracy said. “Growing up in Ohio, you don’t have a choice.” He went to high school in Ohio his freshman and sophomore years, then moved to Frankfort and finished high school at Franklin County, where he was a member of the Flyer football team.
