Head Coach of the Vidalia Baseball program. While I disagree with this decision, I respect the perspective of Principal Bruce Mulkey and Athletic Director Tommy Dalley, who believe it is time to steer the program in a new direction, one that I hope will continue to bring success to the program.

'I appreciate John Sharpe and the Vidalia Board of Education for giving me the opportunity eight years ago to be the head coach of the Vidalia Baseball program. I feel like we have continued to carry on the rich tradition of Vidalia High School Baseball. During those eight years, we achieved remarkable success, winning over 140 games, including two Region Championships and the school's third State Title in 2022.

'It has been a pleasure and an honor to have coached countless young men over my tenure, and hopefully, I've made an impact in their lives and helped them to where when baseball is over with, they will be better citizens, better employees, better husbands, better fathers, and better men.

'While my role may be changing, my commitment to the Vidalia City School System remains steadfast. I am honored to continue supporting Coach Ben Beck and the Softball program as an assistant coach, contributing to the development of our student- athletes.

'To the Vidalia Indian Nation and the Vidalia Community, I extend my heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support. Your enthusiasm and dedication have been instrumental in our achievements. I am confident that you will continue to rally behind the program, ensuring its bright future.'

Mulkey finished by saying, 'We look forward to the challenge of finding the right person to continue to develop young men and build a culture of excellence in our baseball program.'
