Former Haughton head coach Rodney Guin has been named the head football coach at Calvary Baptist Academy, according to a school press release.

He is a man of integrity who impacts kids daily in the classroom and on the field,” Calvary superintendent Chad McDowell said. “Coach Guin is a difference-maker, and we are extremely excited that he will now being leading our football program as head coach.
“Coach Guin is the epitome of a champion of character that possesses the following five core values: Respect, Responsibility, Sportsmanship, Servant-Leadership, and Integrity. Seriously, to have a coach of his caliber, experience, and character lead your football program. How you gonna beat that?”
Guin, who has 34 years of coaching experience, was 127-56 at Haughton. He guided the team to the playoffs all 16 seasons.
Calvary went 8-4 last season, losing to St. Charles 21-0 in the quarterfinals of the Division III playoffs.
