    George Washington High School finally has a new football coach.

    The Danville School Board voted 6-0 to approve Nick Anderson — formerly of Kinston High School in North Carolina — to replace Bobby Martin as the new leading man for the Eagles almost exactly four months away from the start of practices on Aug. 1.

    “ (I’m) just super excited after hearing about all the history that GW football has. It’s a great move for our family,” Anderson said. “We have a little boy who’s 7 months old yesterday and being able to find somewhere to call home to raise him and still have a great football tradition that GW has is something that my family has looked for for a while”

    Anderson, a native of Alamance County, N.C., led the Kinston to a 30-10 record during his three years at the helm of the Vikings, including an appearance in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association 2AA state title game in 2011. Anderson left Kinston, which went 7-5 last season, third on the school’s all-time wins list.

    “ What I always tell our kids is ‘I know what we need to do, but you’re the ones who have to do it.’” Anderson said. “That’s kind of the motto that we go with down there. They’re the guys who do the work. The weight room is a big part of our program, working hard in the weight room. And then on the field their talent takes over. I just kind of stand there and watch because I’m just the organizer. They’re the guys who get all the credit for the accomplishments that we’ve had down there. It is a great program and it’s going in the right direction. It’s sad to leave… But I’m ready to get here and that’s the bottom line. I’m ready to get here and get started and get to work. I’m excited to meet the staff and the kids and I hope that they’re just as excited as I am.”

    The Eagles’ job will be Anderson’s second as a head coach. Prior to his arrival at Kinston he had been an assistant at Greenville Rose High School in Greenville, N.C., for five years.

    Anderson is also no stranger to a short off season. When the Vikings hired him, they did so in July, giving him less than a month to put together a new offense before the start of pre-season workouts. In that first season Kinston went 10-3, tied for second place in the Eastern Plains 2A Conference, and Anderson guided his team to the second round of the NCHSAA 2AA playoffs. The following year Anderson and the Vikings went 13-2 and played for the school’s first-ever state title.

    “ The whole thing about Kinston is I did get hired in July. I think we had a game in a month,” Anderson said. “We put a whole new offense in and we got really organized, made a calendar and that whole thing. The kids, again we’re always about the kids, really bought into what I wanted to do. They gave us all the time that we needed; paid attention during meetings and film study and practice. We are behind the eight-ball a little bit right now. A lot of people have already started spring practice. We’ve started spring practice in Kinston … We’ve got a lot of work to do and we’re ready to do it.”

    Anderson takes over an Eagles squad that went 8-3 en route to winning the last-ever Western Valley District championship in 2012. He will be the fourth head coach for the Eagles in five years.

    According to a recent article in the Kinston Free Press, Anderson made the move partially due to his parents’ recent move to Southside Virginia.

    “ When this job came open; my family actually just moved to the area in Clarksville,” he said. “As soon as they did that this job became open … God has a plan. He’s led me here and we’re excited to be here.”

    Now that the Eagles have a head coach in place they can begin to work on replacing Wayne Shelton, who was placed on special assignment to help run GW athletics since 2011. Shelton’s retirement was announced at the school board meeting as well.

    Clarification

    In a previous version of this story Wayne Shelton was incorrectly listed as the outgoing athletic director at George Washington High School. While Shelton performed all the duties of an athletic director, he was never made the official athletic director. The Eagles have been without an official athletic director since 2006
