Get ready for a new place with a familiar face in Forsyth County this fall. This place is big, really big, with a backdrop that will simply take your breath away. The new place is Denmark High School and that familiar face is head football coach Terry Crowder.
Crowder is no stranger to launching new football programs. He helped open Creekview High School in Cherokee County and led the Grizzlies to 3 playoff appearances in 5 seasons there. Before that Crowder was head coach at Chattahoochee for 9 seasons, leading the Cougars to a 15 and 0 record and the state class 4A title in 2010. That makes the move to Denmark a homecoming, of sorts. You may say that it's life came full circle, but don't expect Crowder to say the same. He just does a lot of smiling these days. " I knew that this was coming," says Crowder. "After meeting with (principal) Ms. Heather Gordy, I knew this was going to be the place. My wife teaches in Forsyth, so I've wanted to get into Forsyth and I just got extremely lucky." We should all be so lucky.
