Pickens Academy will move in a new direction this fall, as Wade Goodman steps aside to give way to new head football coach Scotty Pennington. Goodman will remain on staff as girls basketball and softball coach, while Pennington will assume the football and weightlifting duties. Pennington will also serve as assistant athletic director. "It's a small town atmosphere and I love it," Pennington said. "It seems to make it a little more special when you've got a small group of people and everybody comes to the games and gets into it. That's kind of the thing to do on Friday nights in a small town."
