Woodstock High Instructor Named Athletic Director of the Year

WOODSTOCK, GA -- Chuck Wilson, the athletic director at Woodstock High School, has been selected as the Region 5-AAAAA Athletic Director of the Year.

High school principals throughout the region voted for Wilson to receive the honor. He will compete against all the other regional winners this spring for the chance to become State Athletic Director of the Year.

"Coach Wilson's passion for high school athletics is apparent in each position he has held during his 22 years as an educator in Cherokee County," said Woodstock High principal Bill Sebring.

Wilson began his teaching and coaching career in 1989 at Etowah High School in Woodstock, where he coached football, tennis, baseball and basketball. In 1992, he transferred to Sequoyah High in Canton to serve as an assistant football coach, as well as assistant girls' soccer coach.

When Woodstock High opened in 1996, Wilson became the varsity girls' soccer coach, a position he held for six years. While at Woodstock, he became an assistant football coach on the staff led by renowned head coach Mike O'Brien.

Wilson moved to his current role as assistant principal of Woodstock High in 2005 and was appointed athletic director the following year.

Under his leadership, the Wolverines have won three state championships: softball in 2006, individual track in 2007 and diving in 2008. In addition, nine teams have qualified for state playoffs during Wilson's tenure.

"We are tremendously proud of Coach Wilson and the winning tradition he has brought to our athletic program," said Sebring. "We wish him the best of luck in the State A.D. competition."
