Brunswick, Georgia
THE GLYNN ACADEMY STORY
Glynn Academy, in Brunswick, Georgia, is the fifth oldest high school in the country. But this old school is winning with a new school approach to team. With a diversity of players representing all walks of life, Coach Rocky Hidalgo has found the perfect tool to bond this diverse team: trust. He forges deep relationships one player at a time. And he’s quickly made true believers out of team and town with a 2015 state championship berth, the first since 1964, only to lose by just four points. Now with a chip on their shoulder and a hunger for the title, Coach Rocky Hidalgo and his team have uncovered a newfound intensity under the live oak of south Georgia. ‪#‎SettleYourScore‬ Glynn Academy Terrors

last chance
Last year, we were one yard short from winning state. I think about that one yard every day. This is my school. My senior year. My last chance. ‪#‎SettleYourScore‬ Glynn Academy Terrors
