HAMILTON, Ga. (WTVM) - Tommy Watson has been named the head football coach at Harris County High School. Watson comes from Forsyth, GA, where he was the head coach at Lambert High School for the past two seasons. Former Tigers head coach Jamie Fox announced his retirement in January.

Prior to Lambert, Watson coached at Lowndes High School from June 2015 to January 2020. He’s also spent time at Valdosta High School and Upson-Lee High School.

“My family and I are beyond excited to join the Tiger Family. We are looking forward to building relationships and developing a championship football program,” Watson said when asked about his thoughts on taking the position.

Watson will begin his new role in July.

“Coach Watson brings to us a wealth of knowledge and experience. He has been a part of championship teams and knows what it takes to continue our winning trend and take our program to the next level,” HCHS Principal Lindie Snyder said of the new hire. “His passion and enthusiasm for working with young people through the game of football is contagious. And he has a desire to build a program that involves the entire community, which is important to the people of Harris County. We hope everyone gives the Watson family a warm Harris County welcome.”
