A big Happy Fourth of July to everyone and a big Happy Birthday to former Southeast Guilford and Eastern Guilford coach Bill Slayton today…

Born on the Fourth of July, 83 years ago today, and Coach Slayton has been a mentor to many young men and women in and around Guilford County over the years…

Thanks Coach Slayton and we all hope you enjoy your 83rd birthday here on the 4th of July and let it be a day of some sort of rest, for Coach Slayton and his wife Darcy…

We really do need to remember all of our coaches and former coaches as they hit the later years with Coach Slayton at 83, Coach C.K Siler(Sumner/Southern Guilford) is getting up there, as is Coach Doug Henderson(Western Guilford), Coach Sandy Gann(Northwest Guilford), Coach Mike Raybon(Ragsdale), Coach Tommy Grayson(Eastern Guilford), Coach Kirby(Page) and Coach Mac Morris(Page) are moving along too and we sure do need to remember all of our dedicated coaches and leaders from days past/days gone by….

Soon we can start adding Coach Weaver, Coach Price, Coach Kent and many others to this list and remember them on this day and every day as, the game of life goes on……

Today we highlight Coach Bill Slayton for all he has done and meant to so many people over the years and we say Happy Birthday and ‘Born on the Fourth of July’…..
(Coach Slayton also served in the U.S. Military, so we thank him for that on this day too)….
