Neil May named head football coach at Parkway


Neil May, the defensive coordinator for the past eight seasons, is the new head football coach at Parkway.

Parkway principal Waylon Bates made the announcement in a press release Tuesday.

“Coach Neil May demonstrates a vision to meet the needs of the Parkway High School football program,” Bates said in the release. “His dedication to our school, students and athletes will continue to keep Parkway a successful program.”

Prior to coming to Parkway, May was the defensive coordinator at Captain Shreve High School in Caddo Parish and a student coach at Evangel Christian Academy.

“I would like to thank the Parkway administration for giving me this opportunity,” May said. “I have been a member of the South Bossier community for 20 years and am extremely honored and humbled to be named the head coach at Parkway High School.”

He went on to say, “We look forward to continue building on the success of the Parkway football program and we are excited to get started. Our vision is to love and coach the kids with everything we have. I am very thankful for the support of my family. My wife, Erin, is a second grade teacher at Sun City Elementary. My daughter, Bailey, is a sophomore at Parkway and my son, Peyton, is a sixth grader at Elm Grove Middle. I plan to immediately begin preparations with our coaching staff to ensure a successful transition into spring and fall football.”

May replaces David Feaster, who was relieved of his coaching duties by Bates on Feb. 17 after six seasons at the helm.

May is also currently the head softball coach.
