Last night following a school board meeting, the Hackett School District decided to hire Michael Meador as the new head football coach. Michael is currently an Assistant Football Coach at Rison High School.
He is a graduate of Charleston High School where he played on their State Championship Team under Coach Loughridge who is currently at Alma.
Coach Meador played football at Henderson State where he was a member of the 2012 and 2013 GAC Championship Teams and the first team to make a Division 2 playoff appearance in school history.
Michael was also a Graduate Assistant Coach for two years at Henderson State after his playing career. Coach Meador has his Masters in Education Administration from Henderson State.
The entire Hackett Hornet community is excited to welcome Coach Meador and his family to the area and is looking forward to the upcoming football season.
