Carrollton coach Joey King set a record when he reached the 100-win plateau on Friday after his team defeated Pebblebrook 64-8. King became the fastest coach to win his 100th game.

It took King fewer than eight seasons to reach the milestone. He was 67-4 with five region championships and two state titles during his five seasons at Cartersville (2014-18) and is 33-4 in his third season at Carrollton. His career record is 100-8.

King eclipsed the mark set by Franklin Stephens, who needed 109 games to reach 100. Stephens went 100-8-1 at Tucker, Lamar County and Ware County. He is currently the coach at Burke County.

Hall of Famer Robert Davis needed 110 games at Warner Robins and Alan Chadwick of Marist needed 114 games to reach the century mark.

King, a Cedartown native, had been an assistant coach at Carrollton from 2008-13 under Rayvan Teague. He was an assistant coach at Coastal Carolina and South Florida for one year each before returning to Carrollton in 2021.

King has built a reputation for being able to develop quarterbacks. He coached Heisman Trophy winner Trevor Lawrence at Cartersville and currently has high-profile sophomore Julian “JuJu” Lewis under center.
