GHS Football Announces Brian White as the new Head Coach!

We are thrilled to announce Brian White has been hired as Head Coach of the Guilford High School Football team. Coach White has been a fixture with Guilford Football for decades as a player and coach, most recently as the Defensive Coordinator for the past four seasons. He has been an assistant coach with Guilford Football for a total of 10 years. As a 1997 graduate of Guilford High School, Coach White was a two-time All-SCC Linebacker and served as captain during his senior season.

Coach White grew up on the Guilford Football field when his late father, Marty White, served as a long-time coach and steward for the Guilford youth and high school football programs.

A dual-sport student-athlete during his time at Guilford High School has carried over into his coaching career. Coach White is currently Head Coach of the Guilford High School Boys Lacrosse team. He has led the lacrosse program as Head Coach for 19 seasons and has been on the GHS lacrosse coaching staff for more than 20 years. During his tenure, Coach White has built GHS Boys Lacrosse into a perennial contender in the SCC and throughout the state.

Coach White has been a teacher at Guilford High School for 19 years.

Guilford Youth Football & Cheerleading and the Guilford HS Touchdown Club are beyond excited to partner with Coach White and his staff to continue building Guilford Football into a championship program. The youth program has grown into a reliable feeder system for the high school team and has been partnering on numerous initiatives to help strengthen the connection between our youth and high school players, coaches and families. This momentum will only continue to build with Coach White stepping into the Head Coach position. The Touchdown Club will continue to provide support and supplemental funding to help foster a championship culture while ensuring the coaching staff and players have the best tools and technology available to achieve success on and off the field.

It is a great day for Guilford Football! Please join us in congratulating Coach White and welcoming him as Head Coach of the Guilford High School Football Team. Go Grizzlies!

Thank you.
