After nine seasons as head football coach at Silverdale Baptist Academy, Al Rogers has retired and will focus his energies on running the outdoors education program at the school, one he helped start three years ago.
“I’m getting older now and in this day and age it’s becoming very hard to run a football program as well as doing other things at the school and I felt like it was time to focus solely on the outdoor education program,” Rogers said.
Before taking over the high school program, Rogers ran the middle school program at Silverdale as in his nine seasons as head coach of the high school program, he posted a 50-46 overall record with three playoff appearances in 2012, 2013 and 2018.
In 2018, the Seahawks made the Division II-AA playoffs and in 2012 and 2013 they made the Class 2A playoffs.
The Seahawks made the Class 2A Quarterfinals in 2013 as Silverdale posted an 11-2 record and the three playoff wins in Silverdale’s history were all won in Rogers’ tenure.
The Seahawks missed the playoffs this season with a 4-6 record.
Before coming to Silverdale, Rogers was an assistant coach at Ooltewah and Whitwell.
Currently there are 14 schools looking for a head coach they are: Camden, Cheatham County, Clinton, Franklin County, Goodpasture, Harding Academy, Lincoln County, Loretto, Overton, Pigeon Forge, Red Boiling Springs, Siegel, Silverdale and Station Camp
