Stinchcomb named AD of the Year

From staff reports

Before Friday's football game between Eagle's Landing and Jonesboro, Eagle's Landing's head football coach and athletic director Bob Stinchcomb was presented with the Region 2-AAAAA Athletic Director of the Year award.

"It just reflects on my coaching staff," Stinchcomb said. "This is an outstanding head coaching staff and this is the best situation I have ever been in. We have outstanding coaches and excellent support from the administration."

In the 2002-03 school year, Eagle's Landing ranked second in the region in the Athletic Directors' Cup standings. Last year, Eagle's Landing won six region or area championships and five runners-up. Eagle's Landing also won the Region 2-AAAAA Sportsmanship Award for 2002-03.

Stinchcomb came to Eagle's Landing in 2001 as head football coach and athletic director. He guided the Golden Eagles to a 5-5 record in 2001 in what was one of the best seasons in school history.

The team went 2-8 last year but this season, the Golden Eagles won three of their last four games to go 4-6.
