In our near-death stupor of man flu last week, we missed the following announcement out of perennial postseason contenders, the Chester Romans.
The Chester Romans are pleased to announce the appointment of Levi Edwards as head coach for the 2018 season.
Edwards, 22, is set to become one of Britain’s youngest head coaches and despite his age brings 7 years of coaching experience to the Romans.
A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Edwards grew up in Savannah, Georgia. A 2013 graduate of Savannah’s prestigious Benedictine Military School he began his coaching career as a student assistant with the perennial powerhouse Cadet football team. After graduation, Edwards attended Valdosta State University and then Georgia Southern University where he continued to develop his football prowess.
After spending six successful years assisting the Cadets, Edwards relocated to Chester in 2017 where he served as the Romans Defensive Line Coach. He will also serve as the Quarterback Coach for the University of Chester Legion this season.
Edwards brings to the role a youthful exuberance, a high level of organization and an attention to detail that will serve to propel the Romans to a new standard.
When asked for comment Edwards had this to say,
“I am both humbled and honored to be presented with this opportunity. The Chester Romans are a fantastic organization with a long and storied history and I’m proud to be apart of that. I look forward to working hard with the great group of guys here and helping this team reach its full potential.”
