Keith Wilkes took the Winston-Salem Carver Yellow Jackets to two NCHSAA Championships and now he is looking to return to North Carolina, from Georgia, and become the new head football coach at Charlotte’s Vance High School….Coach Wilkes has always been well thought of in the high school football community, he’s in the Forsyth County Sports Hall of Fame and he coaches football like it is a family event and not just a job….Coach Wilkes is held in a similar regard, to highly respected DeAngelo ‘Dee’ Bell at WS Parkland and a Greensboro Grimsley grad…..

Vance High’s next football coach could be a Forsyth County Hall of Famer who led Winston-Salem Carver to two state championships.

According to sources close to the program, Vance has nominated Keith Wilkes to be its next football coach. Wilkes’ hiring would have to approved by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. If approved, Wilkes would replace Phil Culicerto, who coached Vance in 2009 and 2010. Culicerto’s 2010 team finished 11-4 and reached the N.C. 4AA semifinals.
