Barrow named football coach at Mundy's Mill

By Anthony Rhoads

In the last few years, Kenny Barrow has turned Martin Luther King Jr. High School, a school that has only been open since 2001, into a state football power.

In 2003, Barrow guided the MLK football team to the Class AAAA quarterfinals and in 2004, he took MLK to the Class AAA semi-finals, losing to eventual state champion LaGrange.

Before going to MLK, Barrow was an assistant at Morrow High School

Now, Barrow will be coming back to Clayton County as he has been named the new head football coach at Mundy's Mill.

Mundy's Mill is similar to MLK in that is a new program. Mundy's Mill opened in 2002 and played its first varsity season last year and its first region schedule this year.

Barrow replaces Chad Estes, who recently resigned from the position. Estes had been Mundy's Mill's head coach since the school opened. In 2003, Mundy's Mill posted a 5-5 record and this year, went 3-6-1.

"I'm excited," Mundy's Mill athletic director Mike McElrath said. "We had a lot of people apply for it and we very impressed with Kenny in his interview and resume and the success he's had at MLK. MLK is a year older than us and his first senior class went to the quarterfinals and his second senior class he took to the Dome. We're excited to get someone of his caliber."
