School sports

Coffee High School has the following sports teams:

Football

In 2001, the school concluded a divisive search for a new football coach which ended in the return of Bonwell Royal.[3] Royal retired in 2005,[4] and the state legislature passed House Resolution 306 to commend him for his 34 year career, 26 of which were with Coffee High School.[5] Specifically mentioned in the resolution was the 2002 Region 1-AAAAA Championship.[6]

In 2006, after an extensive playoff drought, the Trojan Football Team, led by second year Head Coach Jerry Odom, earned an 8-2 record, qualifying for the State Playoffs. [1] They lost in the second round to Stephenson High School. [2]

In 2007, the Trojans returned to the playoffs with an 8-2 record. [3] They once again lost in the second round. [4]

In 2008, under new Head Coach Ken Eldridge, the Trojans finished with a 7-3 record, barely qualifying for the State Playoffs. [5] In the first round of the Playoffs, they traveled to Stone Mountain, Georgia to play Stephenson High School, the team responsible for knocking the Trojans out of the playoffs in 2006. [6] This time, the Trojans were victorious, winning in overtime. [7] They went on to lose in the third round, surpassing their achievements in the past two years. [8]

Jardine Stadium

Named in honor of Dan A. Jardine, Jardine Stadium is the home of the Coffee High football Trojans. Jardine Stadium was renovated in 2009 to include a new home seating section, ticket booths, artificial turf, renovated restrooms and concessions, and additional end-zone seating for the Coffee High Trojan Marching Band.

Music

Coffee High also is home to the Coffee High School marching band which is under the direction of Steve Myers and assisted by Jeremy Johnson, Davis S. Moorer, Zach Williams, and the auxiliary coach Julie Johnson (whom is married to assistant director Jeremy Johnson). Steve Myers' wife Tania Myers has also helped out with the band in previous years and is currently the chorus teacher for Coffee High School. Since Steve Myers took over as Head director from John O'Brien in 2005, he has led the successful half time shows: James Bond (2005), Styx (2006), Changing Lanes (2007), Motown (2008), Guitar Hero (2009), I Love The 80's (2010).

Together the CHS Show Choir, Concert Choir and the Jazz Band all received Superior ratings at Festival, garnering them the Sweepstakes Trophy.

Chorus

Chorus are Show Choir are performed under the direction of Tania Myers. Myers, who has been in charge of the Show Choir, Concert Choir, and Beginning Choir classes at CHS for 14 years, teaches all her students to read music when they start out in the beginning class.

The students in Mrs. Tania Myers’ Show Choir perform over 40 times a year at various community, church, and school functions.

Many of the students say Show Choir has taught them responsibility. Because of budget cuts in the school system the students have to pay for the bus and bus driver when they sing outside of school, even if they sing at other schools in the system. They also have to pay for their own costumes.

What We Do

2009-2010:The choir recently incorporated “mash-ups” adopted from the television show “Glee” and songs from the popular “High School Musical” series in addition to their repertoire of standards, 70s and 80s rock classics, inspirational melodies, and patriotic tunes.

The group’s choreography is designed by Zach Williams, Coffee High Band assistant director and a former choir student of Mrs. Myers who returned to the classroom to work with her and to sing with the students.
