Michael Woolridge assumes the head coaching position at HHS. Coach Woolridge is no stranger to the Hardaway program. He is a 2000 graduate of Hardaway High school where he was a key member of the 1998 squad that finished the year 10-2 and reached the second round of the state playoffs. Hardaway’s only losses that year came at the hands of the two state finalists (Dougherty Co and Peach Co).
After graduating from HHS in 2000, Woolridge continued his playing career at Eastern Kentucky University. In 2004 he was invited to the Cincinnati Bengals camp as a free agent.
Following his NFL experience, he began coaching as a Graduate Assistant at Marshall University. He has served as an assistant coach on the high school level at McIntosh, Hardaway, Harris Co, and Jordan.
