The Word from Evan Fancourt, new Athletic Director at Grimsley HS: New man in charge of Athletics at Grimsley High School

The Word from Evan Fancourt today, new Athletic Director at Grimsley HS:
“Today I suppose is my first official day. Have been coming over since school got out to work with Ethan Albright”

“Ethan has still been helping out some, but I am thrilled to be back at Grimsley.”

The new man in charge of Athletics at Grimsley High School is Evan Fancourt…Evan replaces now former Grimsley AD, Ethan Albright…Ethan will now have more time to follow his sons on the college football trail…One son for Ethan at Northwestern University(Nolan), and the other at Cornell(Lawson)…Also word/have heard that Ethan has had some foot problems, and he wants to get those corrected too…

Interesting note, both Evan Fancourt and Ethan Albright, are Grimsley HS graduates, with Evan playing basketball for Grimsley back in his high school days, and Evan later played college basketball for the Lynchburg University Hornets…Ethan played football, basketball, and baseball for Grimsley, and later college football for the UNC Tar Heels, and pro football for the Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, and Buffalo Bills…

Both Evan Fancourt and Ethan Albright are former outdoor basketball court players from Forest Valley Court/Forest Valley Park…

Evan Fancourt is the former JV boys basketball coach at Grimsley HS, the head boys basketball coach from Southern Guilford HS, and the head boys basketball coach at Page High School…Evan with a very extended basketball background…He was also an assistant football coach at Southern Guilford HS, working under current Grimsey HS head football coach Daryl Brown…

Looking forward to seeing Evan Fancourt over at Grimsley HS, and he is a very hard worker..One of the hardest working high school basketball coaches that you would ever see…He hit the floor literally, many times while coaching the Page Pirates…He would be coaching while standing, and you would look up and he would be on/in the floor in no time at all…

We will look for Evan Fancourt on and off the floor over at Grimlsey HS, and will also watch for his young son Jackson to come running and sliding across that Phil Weaver Court during some of the Grimsley basketball halftimes this upcoming year…Jackson is a mover, and will not be seen sitting still very long…Currently enrolled at Lindley Elementary School….

Again Best of Luck to Evan Fancourt in his new role at Grimsley HS, and he is a very hard worker, and puts a lot into anything he does, and for help, he can lean on head football coach Daryl Brown, head boys basketall coach Darren Corbett, and head baseball coach Jason Simmons, with all of those coaches being men coming out of Southern Guilford High School…Also Ged O’Donnell the head man/principal at Grimsley HS, is an outstanding leader, and will keep all the troops moving forward…You can also be sure that former Grimsley AD Ethan Albright will available if needed, for Grimsley AD Evan Fancourt…

Quite the team over at Grimsley HS, and I am sure that they are glad to have Evan Fancourt on board…

  1. Fancourt will be without Albright’s ring hand man, Coach Nance, who works moreso like an assistant AD. He left Grimsley to take a job back at Page recently. He looks to help his old friend Coach Hagan.

    Losing Albright and Nance are huge losses. Those guys are big leaders and figure heads.
