Powell steps down citing health

The Glenbrook Apache football program will be led by a new face in 2018.

Glenbrook School Athletic Director Gary Harris and Headmaster Darden Gladney announced via press release that Ronnie Powell would be stepping aside as head football coach, citing health concerns, following one season at the helm.

Powell took over as head coach of the Apaches last June, following a two-year hiatus from coaching. The MAIS veteran came to Glenbrook as a well-known commodity with two state championships under his belt. Powell led the Apaches to a 2-0 start before eventually finishing 3-7 on the year.

The search for a new head football coach has already begun, according to Harris.

“I’ve really enjoyed getting to know coach Powell and working with him in the short amount of time I’ve been at Glenbrook,” Harris said. “I am appreciative of what coach Powell did this past season in stabilizing our program through a tough time.

Coach Powell is a championship coach and I’m grateful for all he did for our school and our kids over this past year. Many people aren’t aware of some of the challenges he faced this season, including postponing some critical health procedures until the season was over. I wish him all the best in the future,” stated Harris.

Glenbrook will be searching for their fourth head football coach in five years.

“A thorough search is already underway to continue to build our football program into it’s former glory,” Harris said. “We will be looking for someone who understands the challenges that a small school like Glenbrook faces and is committed to the hard work and dedication it will take to compete for championships.”
