Whitaker to Guide Webster County Football Team

Trojans Football 300DIXON, Ky. (7/3/14) — Mike Whitaker has been named the new head coach of the Webster County High School football team.

A veteran high school football coach, Whitaker brings seventeen years of coaching experience to Webster County.

No stranger to the area, Whitaker spent six years as the head coach of the Christian County football team. Whitaker's hiring ended Webster County's second coaching search in four months. Most recently, Whitaker was an assistant coach at Montgomery County. He was at the helm of the Christian County football program from 2001-2006.

Whitaker's coaching resume also includes a stint as an assistant coach on the Eastern Kentucky University football staff.

A Leslie County native, Whitaker was the head coach at his high school alma mater, guiding eventual NFL Draft No. 1 pick Tim Couch. As a player, a talented quarterback, Whitaker received a scholarship to the University of Kentucky and played as a freshman. Whitaker, however, transferred to Eastern Kentucky University. Following a redshirt year, Whitaker started in both his junior and senior seasons, leading EKU to the NCAA Division I-AA Semifinals in his final campaign.

Webster County concluded the 2013 season with a 1-10 overall record.

The Trojans are slated to face Hopkins County Central, Muhlenberg County, Union County, Ballard Memorial, Crittenden County, Hart County, Trigg County, Fort Campbell, Paducah Tilghman and McLean County during the 2014 season.
