In his nearly two decades at the helm of the Western Alamance football program, Hal Capps turned the Warriors into powerhouse, winning a state title and becoming a playoff fixture.
On Monday morning, he announced that he was ready for a new challenge.
Capps informed his team that he was resigning to take the head coaching job at Mooresville High School.
â€œHeâ€™s meant a lot to the community,â€ Western Alamance athletics director Carter Gerlach said. â€œEverybody Iâ€™ve talked to has the utmost respect for him. â€¦ Heâ€™s a good friend; heâ€™s going to be missed.â€
In 18 seasons at Western Alamance, Capps turned the Warriors into a model of consistency, reaching the postseason 12 times â€” including an active streak of eight straight seasons â€” and the state championship game four times. He leaves the Warriors with a record of 168-69 with 15 winning seasons.
In 2007, after three straight state title game losses, Cappsâ€™ Warriors capped a 16-0 campaign with a 62-36 rout of North Gaston for the Class 3-A championship.
A Williams High School graduate, Capps played college football at Catawba before stints as an assistant coach at Lumberton and Eden Morehead.
