OLNEY, Md. (WDVM) – On Wednesday, Sherwood high school announced Andrew Fields, a graduate of the school, as its new head football coach.
Fields tells WDVM that he’s excited to take over the reigns at his alma mater.
“It’s made the transition a bit easier and more exciting, knowing that it’s just a proud alumni base,” Fields said. “You kind of lose sight of that and then something like this happens and you get, you know 100 twitter messages and 200 text messages and a bunch of Facebook messages, and you realize how important it is to the community and to the alumni.”
Fields replaces legendary coach Tom Crowell, who retired from coaching last month.
Fields spent last season as an assistant at Gonzaga high school and at Good Counsel the year before that. He also has prior stints with Blair, Northwest and Churchill.
Fields played college football at Towson University.
