It is hard to say the right things at a time like this, but with the death of Coach Chris Kile(Southeast Guilford HS Football) this morning, we ask that you lift up his wife and little daughter in prayer…I spoke to SEG Falcon head coach Walter ‘Fritz’ Hessenthaler this afternoon and he confirmed that Coach Kile did pass away this morning…Coach Chris Kile has died, but his spirit will never die and will remain with everyone in the Southeast Guilford Football Community….Coach Kile had been battling severe/serious forms of Cancer for over 5 years and the Falcons lost one of their main inspirational forces this morning, with the death of Coach Chris Kile…

Coach Kile had been VERY sick over the past year and he could not go on and now he is gone…To put it all together, we need to put all we have together and keep lifting up Coach Chris Kile’s wife and little daughter in prayer and let’s make sure that this is the main focus, as his family begins to deal with their loss…We had Coach Kile as our guest over at Shane’s Rib Shack back in September of 2014 and his wife and little daughter were there with him, on that visit to Shane’s….

We also lift up Coach Fritz and his coaching staff as they begin/embark on the new 2016 football season this Monday, with very heavy hearts, as they remember their fallen coaching assistant….Keep up the prayer and that seems to be the best formula to keep on keeping on, in times like these….

Thanks to Coach Kile, for going the “Extra Mile” and we join with many others in saying on July 29, 2016, RIP:Coach Chris Kile…….

from GreensboroSports.com in August of 2014 and many people/readers have been coming and looking over this post today, in the hours since the passing of Chris Kile….

“Coach Kile” going the ‘extra mile’ for the Southeast Guilford Falcons
Posted by Andy Durham on August 23, 2014 at 8:40 pm under High School

The Southeast Guilford Falcons rolled over the Northern Durham Knights on Friday night down in Durham(30-0 Falcons), but SEG assistant coach and their offensive coordinator, Coach Chris Kile has been doing anything but rolling lately…

It is all Coach Kile can do to just get around, but he is going the ‘extra mile’ for his Falcons, as his team battles opponents from opposite sides of the county and state, while Coach Kile, battles the “Big C” and he fights it every day and he is in a fight for his life…

Coach Kile has cancer and he beat his deadly foe in Round One, but the ‘C’ word is back and Coach Kile is fighting and treating this concentrated killer and his focus has gone from normal routine, to a regular 24/7 battlefield and his only escape on some days and nights, is the football field.

Coach Kile is the Southeast Guilford offensive coordinator and his men put 30 points up on the board last night during their stop in Durham County and Coach Kile was lucky to be able to keep standing up the entire game, but this man is a warrior…

He used to a Southern Alamance Patriot and made the move from Graham to Greensboro, when Coach Fritz Hessenthaler was named the head coach of the Southeast Guilford Falcons, over 10 years ago…

Coach Kile has been at this football deal for a while and finds the teams on the Falcons’ regular season schedule a lot easier to prepare for, than he does the Cancer that keeps trying to kill him…

Coach Kile knows you have a very good chance to beat the high school football teams that you get your men ready to face each Friday, that is if you have done your homework and if you have stayed dedicated to the task before you…

Coach Kile knows that there is no documented game plan to defeat Cancer, you just have to trust the Chemotherapy treatments and believe in the ‘Power of Prayer’…

That seems to be what has brought Coach Kile to where is today…Still standing and willing to go the ‘Extra Mile’ with the ‘Power of Prayer’ backing him up….

The ‘Power of Prayer’ is what Coach Kile has in is corner these days and that seems to have become his Coach that is helping to keep him in the game…The ‘Power of Prayer’ seems to be everywhere, when you study the “Cancer and Coach”….

In Round One the score was Coach Kile 1, Cancer 0….Round Two is now in an aggressive stage/fight and Cancer is trying to knock Coach Kile down, as he leads his offensive team through those 2-hour practices in the hot August sun and the humidity came back this week, to make matters worse…

Coach Chris Kile has his wife and family watching his back and his fellow coaches and his SEG Falcon team will be there for him at all times…

But with the Sunday morning dawn just hours away, we need to remember that key word on this special day…..Pray

The ‘Power of Prayer’ is everywhere and it is in the life of Coach Kile from Southeast Guilford High School….It doesn’t matter what team you are on, as you hit the churches on Sunday, saw a prayer for Coach Chris Kile at Southeast Guilford…

I do feel this ‘Power of Prayer’ can go a long way in lending a helping hand to Coach Kile….It is time to lift him up and remember how hard Coach Kile has worked on his watch at SEG….

This man can use your support and all it takes is one word of prayer from each of you that read this post and we can give Coach Kile a boost, that may take him to the “Cancer Survivors Hall of Fame”….

Our old coach used to say the word of the day was, HIT and then HIT some more….

Today I say the word of the day is Pray….Pray for Coach Chris Kile and help him go that ‘Extra Mile’…

Pray and remember, it is time to call on the “Power of Prayer”….
(With the passing of Coach Chris Kile this morning, Friday July 29, 2016, this is true now more than ever.)
Please pray for his family…..

    I sure hate to hear this. He was a very good coach and an even better person for a long time.
