McAdory’s David Powell resigns to take over at Sumiton Christian

Sumiton, AL – After 25 years at the helm of the McAdory Yellow Jackets football program David Powell is stepping down. PrepsNet has confirmed that the veteran head coach has resigned to accept the same position at Sumiton Christian School in Walker County.

Powell, who has spent his entire 36 year coaching career at McAdory, is expected to remain with the Yellow Jackets through their spring game against the Tuscaloosa County Wildcats, Thursday night at McAdory Stadium.

The Midfield native and Jacksonville State alumni leaves McAdory as the winningest coach in program history compiling a record of 220-76, including 11 region titles and a 121-25 mark in region play. His Yellow Jacket teams have reached the postseason 24 times in 25 seasons, advancing to the 5A state title game in 2012 and making back-to-back trips to the state semi-finals in 2009 and 2010.

Powell takes over for former Sumiton head coach Bart Black who resigned after leading the 2A program to a 1-9 record in his lone season as the Eagles head coach. He will become the Eagles fourth leader on the gridiron in the past four seasons.
