Coach Johnson’s GDS Bengals did it again last night. Greensboro Day School was down 16-7 after one quarter and behind 36-21 at halftime at Forsyth Country Day, but the GDS Bengals came back again and won the game 70-66. I’m sure Coach Johnson would pass along the credit to his players but Freddy is always ready and how can you beat his team? The Bengals are (21-2) but Coach J has over 800 career wins and he is just barely past 50 years of age. If he were to coach another 30 years that would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,700 wins when he retires, if he ever does.
It says a lot for GDS and their success. Bruce Woodall, Javan Mitchell, and Jay Lewis will always play well and the Bengals have an excellent supporting cast with Chip Wintringham, Christian Pulliam, Ryan Carty, Brandon Dorsett and company. But the key is Fred-dy.
Can Rusty LaRue or any other local coaches match wits with Coach Freddy Johnson? Let’s go back and take it from the top:
Help Wanted! Can anyone out-coach Freddy Johnson?
