Edgewood Academy’s Bobby Carr steps down as head football coach

Wildcat Football Review

Elmore, AL – The football team who is riding the nations longest active winning streak will be lead by a new head coach when they take the field in 2016.

Edgewood Academy’s Bobby Carr announced on Tuesday that we will be stepping down as the head football coach, athletic director and head baseball coach at the AISA powerhouse.

In his fifteen seasons as head coach of the Wildcats, Carr complied a record of 162-25 on the gridiron, including seven of the last eight AISA-AA championships.  On the baseball diamond he has lead Edgewood to five AISA state championships.

The Wildcats have not lost a football game since October 2, 2009.

Carr’s announcement, coupled with the recent resignation of Stanhope-Elmore High School head football coach Jeff Foshee has lead to speculation that Carr may be the front runner to fill the Mustangs head coaching vacancy.

Carr, the 2010 ASWA Coach of the Year is an alumnus of Millbrook’s Stanhope-Elmore High School and served as the head football coach at nearby New Life Christian Academy (6-4) for one season before being named head coach a Edgewood.

The Edgewood Academy Wildcats will put their seventy-one game winning streak on the line against Mississippi power Jackson Prep in Montgomery’s Crampton Bowl Saturday August 13th.
