More on the death of Tim Nash, girls soccer coach at Page High School, from Joe Sirera, with the News and Record:
Nash, the girls soccer coach at Page High School and a girls U17 and U19 coach with North Carolina Fusion, had been a coach for more than 40 years at the club and high school levels. But he also had helped share the stories of athletic achievements by high school students and their teams in a part-time role covering games for the News & Record and Greensboro.com. A resident of Graham, he suffered a fatal heart attack while driving home after covering the Grimsley-Ragsdale football game, this past Friday night…

Nash is survived by his wife of 33 years, Cherri; a daughter, Allison, 29; and a son, Ian, 23

At GreensboroSports, we have shared the press box and the high school basketball press table many a night with Tim Nash over the years…Tim wrote high school football and basketball articles for the News and Record’s HSXtra section, and he worked on high school sports for the paper and online along with Joe Sirera and J.P. Mundy and others…Tim Nash coached high school soccer at Page High School and he also coached youth soccer teams in the area and, I think he had a home base down around Burlington and Alamance County for awhile…I remember he told me that he coached Sammi Furlough, the daughter of Northern Guilford girls basketball coach Kim Furlough, and that he coached Sammi Furlough in soccer….

Tim Nash would always get some concessions and some snacks at the high school ball games, and I remember he always took his notes on notebook paper and sometimes Tim would have those notes spread out all over the place, but by the time he got those notes organized, his News and Record/HSXtra articles turned out just fine…Tim would have quite the stack of those notebook paper notes, by the time the games were over, and again, Tim always got those notes in order for his deadlines for the N&R…..He did a good job for the local paper and he was a good/nice compliment to the job that Joe Sirera and J..P Mundy did…
(Just doing most of this from memory, but I think Tim Nash also covered the Greensboro Swarm D League basketball team for the News and Record for a period of time.)

Tim was as good man, and he will be missed….You hate to see those that you knew from the ball game days, now gone and no longer with us…

RIP:Time Nash
