Coach Russell Stone used to be the head man over at West Forsyth and he may be the man that took the Titans to the 4-A State Championship game versus the Richmond County Raiders back in the early 90’s…..Not sure if it was Kennard Martin, that was with that team as the RB and later ended up at UNC(Martin may have been at WS Parkland), but Coach Russell Stone was at West Forsyth and I’m sure he can “Remember the Titans”….
Douglas Byrd High School football coach Russell Stone has been suspended from coaching tonight’s final regular-season game at Cameron Union Pines.
Stone said he was suspended by Leon Mack, student activities director for the Cumberland County Schools, for running up the score in last week’s game against Southern Lee. Byrd won the game 75-7.
Mack declined to comment on the suspension, saying he could not discuss personnel matters.
The reaction of Southern Lee coach Tom Paris was one of surprise: “You’re kidding?”
Paris said he and Stone shook hands after the game and that he didn’t say a word to Stone about the score.
“We got beat,” Paris said. “It doesn’t matter to me if you get beat by seven or 70. A loss is a loss. I hadn’t said a word to anybody, and I don’t know what to say about this.”
