He was able to get talent on the field in Bacon and that was it. He cussed the players like dogs and they had no respect for him. Any coach could have had a 13 and 9 record with that talant. The man was 2 and 20 against teams with winning records (Lanier & Toombs, not good teams). Worst special teams coach I ever saw. Matt Thrift and the rest of the talent was responsible for back to back winning seasons. He could not coach in a tougher area to win, that is why he failed at Milton. In Florida 1A football there are only 36 teams therefore making it deep into the playoffs can be pretty easy. If you can get the talant on the field and make the players stronger you have a chance in 1A Florida football, even if you are not really a great coach when it comes to x's & o's. In Georgia AA there are 62 teams, which means you need more then talent and a strong team on the field to make it deep in playoffs. You actually need a good coach that can make a difference. Bobby Johns is headed back to 1A in Florida where he can win 8 to 12 games a year and walk around having everyone feed his ego, he needs that.

What a friggin idiot. You seem to know so much to get the damn job for yourself. TALENT???? You want to see talent look at the teams bacon played last year. We looked like a middle school team next to every one of them even the ones we beat. All I can say is assholes like you make it look like johns made the right decision!!! You are an embarrassment to the real raider fans. Also if you think they have no respect for him why don't you ask the ones that played for him....don't go ask some pus that quit but go ask the ones that finished two years in his program. They loved him and still will forever. I know because my child is one of them and you are a pure blown idiot. As for x and o' s he is the best that has been there during my generation back to the 70's other than maybe coach rigdon who would be in the same class. Bottom line is you are one of the few that really do t matter because you are not involved or are a disgruntled parent. So crawl back u see your rock and leave a good man alone.

......i guess the facts don't matter the 2 district championships in 4 yrs at bakef co. 5A after going o-10 before coach jonhs didn't happen ...why do you want to bash someone who you obviouly know very little about...why don't you move on and do something constructive to help your program be successful...wrongfully bashing a good man and a quality coach does nothing to help anyone ... bacon county should be better represented than this...thankfully fans like you are in the minority even though more vocal..time to move on!!!

Got to agree. Johns is a foul mouth man with no character. Several players were not coming back next year if he was coaching. I for one am not interested in selling my soul to have a coach like that. Bring in a coach with character or hire Owens. Owens does have character.

Owens is a great guy, but what in the world. Do we hire him cause he lives here in Alma or because he goes to church with some of us, or do we hire him because he can coach football and train our kids in the weightroom. The question is do we continue in our direction with the program or do we change it and look else where. I like what I saw tough, hard body kids, that were physical. I like that what about y'all??????????

....so i guess your son did not play much?? must be the coaches fault...coach johns is no preacher or sunday school teacher but he does teach kids about being responsible and committed to something so they can function in the real world ...he is passionate about about the game and winning snd along the way he has contributed to the development of some pretty responsible kids...there are a number along the way that will attest to that..foul language may be a test of character for you and while i am not condoning it i occasionally use some myself to make a point..that does not make it right but i don't believe you would find anyone who knows me would say i have no moral character...the people who really know coacb johns feel the same..attacking someone personally just because you do not agree. with them could be a more serious character flaw than foul language??? just a thought...

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. I guess if you show emotion and you yell then its poor character. I guess anyone who gets angry or loud or shows passion will have poor character, for ex. the teacher that's scolds a kids that's poor character, the police officer who use foul language to subdue a perp, or maybe the pastor that's scolds his congregation for whatever the issues might be. These are examples of poor character, LMAO. Poor character by me.

The teacher that asks a student what the fu*k was he thinking after failing a test gets fired. So should a coach when using the f word during practice. This is not college or pro ball. Johns is a phony with a small circle of supporters. A man with character is the same man when talking to players, the parents, the bankers, the preachers, the principals, the business leaders when asking for money, or reporters from the paper. The only people he cursed and treated badly was the players. Put on a front in front of others.

Coach Owens has more character in his little finger than you or Johns combined have in your entire bodies. Don't forget that.

Hey 2 cents.... Just cause you say it don't make it so. You don't know anything about these men's character. You just don't like coach johns so you cast stones at his character since you cannot cast them at his coaching. Good thing he doesn't need your approval to be successful. As for me you don't know me so you can't judge me.....but GOD will judge you big guy.
