"I’m extremely excited to be able to recommend a candidate who will be able to generate so much excitement in our community.  Coach Kenny King has all the assets we were looking for: strong character, excellent leadership skills, and experience as both player and coach.  He also happens to be a hometown hero, being a Daphne High School graduate as well as both a collegiate and NFL football star.  His life experiences in other athletic programs will bring great benefits to our athletes, and it will be a great homecoming to have him, his wife, and three young children back in Daphne."
