Just another sign of a dying community. We've lost tons of jobs and now the football coach. Just cancel the football program and concentrate on our kids education. Maybe then we can turn this town around.

That football program keeps many many of our boys on track. We would not have the graduation rates we do if they did not have football.

Also, instead of on the field and in the weight room all summer and fall they would be on the street.

I can't blame Pruitt if he leaves but I hope he stays. We would be losing a group of amazing Christian people.

Any observant person in our community knows just how much Pruitt did for these boys so i wont bother to defend that BUT what I don't understand is why people think he makes so much money? H9w bout you average his hours worked and salary. Won't be that much. Coaches work day amd night, lots of summer, and even during holiday breaks.

Tell ya what...... anyone of of the folks that think a coach or teacher make too much money, do this: Find a sixteen year old stranger and for the next week let them make every decision for you at your job, you cannot argue or second guess their decisions. If you have a job at the end of the week, find another ... and so on, when you get to about 75 kids, then come tell us how it works.

Yep, teachers teach all year long, except for summer and all the bank holidays. Sure is tough.

I bet if you go with the numbers that the jaycees have brought in at concession stand, ticket sales,money donated to the football team by WILLING people since 2000, Pruitts salary has come from this. Before he came there was 50 people at football games. Now there are 1000. Think people think, jeoloousey will not help you. He has been good for theis community LIKE IT OR NOT!....i KNOW WHEN MY CHILD WENT TO fhs THE TEACHERS THAT DID NOT LIKE HIM were sorry teachers in there classrooms. they were always having trouble. Get real tell it like it is. In the real world everybody does not get along with everybody but $$ wise he has been good for our community like it or not.

With the money that he will be offered it would be best for him to go to Coffee.

We are wondering where we are getting the money from too. I have heard that it is an ungodly amount, and for what, a winning football team. We are more than 4 million in the hole right now, and still having problems with the SACS thing, yet all some can think about is winning football games.

If he doesn't come in and win at least ten games in his first season, the big wigs in town will be calling for his head too.

Hey Pruitt, money isn't everything and why in the world would you leave a program that you have taken this far for one you will have to rebuild? Mark Richt couldn't help us in douglas, we just don't have the talent.

I have said before and will say again. If Pruitt moved only for $ he would have left a long time ago
