“The Man/Mr. Ram” gets his spot:Chris Suggs is the new Head Baseball Coach at Northeast Guilford High

This guy grew up at Northeast Guilford High School, he graduated from Northeast Guilford HS, and then after college he came back to teach and coach at Northeast Guilford HS…

If there ever was a “Ture NEG Ram”, this is ‘The Man”…I think his mom worked there, his dad helped out there at Northeast Guilford High School, and Chris Suggs’ blood bleeds Northeast Guilford Blue…
(You see the blood line of Blue up here, and you will also see it from Coach Suggs below.)

There has not been many day or night, over the past 20-25 years when you didn’t find Chris Suggs on the campus of Northeast Guilford High School, out there on Hicone Road…

He played football for Coach Tommy Pursley at NEG, and played baseball at NEG(I believe for Pappy Chapell), plus he has coached football and baseball, as an assistant at Northeast for many years now….

Chris Suggs is your man, and he is now the new head baseball coach for the Northeast Guilford Rams…He helped coach Jaylin Davis, the McCann brother(Jacob and Caleb), Caelen Cannady, Luis Paula, Joisel Colon, big Harry the third baseman, Austin Elmore, and many more…

Congrats to Coach Chris Suggs for getting his spot, and now he will get a shot to turn the NEG Rams baseball program around, and hopefully Brian Aviolo and others will there to give him a hand on the new post…

from NEG AD Cheri Sharp:
Chris Suggs will be the Head Baseball Coach at Northeast Guilford High

We are excited to announce that Coach Suggs has moved into the role of Head Baseball Coach. He is a 2005 graduate of Northeast and has been with the baseball program since 2008. He started out as a JV assistant in 2008 and moved to Head JV coach in 2016. He also was an assistant football coach from 2015-2020.

Coach Suggs has had the privilege to work with exceptional coaches while in the Northeast program. Chris understands the time commitment involved and he is excited to get to work with the baseball players. He is a great leader for our student-athletes both on the field and in the classroom.

From Coach Suggs: As a former Ram baseball player, I am excited for the opportunity to take over the Northeast Guilford baseball program. I bleed navy and white and have had some of the best memories of my life there playing football and baseball. I have spent the past fourteen years coaching under two experienced coaches who have helped to prepare me for this opportunity. I look forward to this upcoming season and continuing to build the Ram baseball program back to its “Winning Tradition”.
