Turnage takes over Lee-Davis

Turnage takes lead at Lee-Davis

MECHANICSVILLE, VA (WWBT) - Ryan Turnage is in the midst of his first camp as Lee-Davis's head coach, and brings an expectation of winning with him. He knows he has the club to accomplish big things with.

The new head Confederate was hired to take over the team after the departure of Zac Hayden, who led Lee-Davis to the postseason in two of his four seasons. Last year, the Confederates finished 5-5 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011.

Turnage takes the reins of a team that returns two starters on each side of the ball, but has a good deal of talent to fill the holes left by those who graduated.

Previously, Turnage was the head coach at Jamestown High School for seven seasons, and also was an assistant for Pedro Arruza at Randolph-Macon.

He'll coach his first official game for Lee-Davis on September 5, when the Confederates host Mountain View.
