We are pleased to announce that Coach Benny Livingston has been named the 2019 Class A-Public Assistant Coach of the Year by the Georgia Dugout Club. In the past decade, Livingston oversaw the development of 9 players that went on to the next level. Recently, TCHS made the playoffs 4 years straight, making a semifinal appearance in 2017 and a state finals appearance in 2018. In that span, TCHS pitchers were excellent, posting a sub-3.00 ERA over 4 years. Catchers were just as effective, throwing out 14 runners in 2017. Just as important as his on-field efforts, Coach Livingston is well-regarded at TCHS for his willingness to go the extra mile to help fix or build equipment, machinery, etc. to make all of the sports at TCHS function. Congratulations Coach Livingston, and thank you for everything you've done for our program over the years!
