The Jimmy Howard Fox era is set to begin

There is a new chapter unfolding in Fox athletic history. His love for the King George High School sports and his beloved community has come full circle. Although the King George School Board selected Jimmy Howard for the position a month ago, the excitement and challenges ahead of continuing the winning tradition that Irving Taylor instilled in program are never far from Howard’s thoughts. Under Taylor’s auspices, the Fox golf program never had a losing season.

Howard’s coaching staff will be composed of King George County administrator Travis Quesenberry, Donald Clift and Will Martin. The entire

coaching staff is equipped with an extensive history of playing and coaching golf.

Intent on reloading for a run at the district championship, Howard and his staff have already met with returning golfers, and students interested in joining the team.
“I stressed at the meeting to play as much as you can during the summer and to be ready for the first day of golf practice, Aug. 1,” Howard said.

Throughout the season, game days will center on Mondays and Thursdays.

Beginning Aug.1, Howard’s team will practice at Cameron Hills Golf Course. The practice will be structured with chipping, putting and range stations. Howard hopes to feature his staff coaching on a 1-5 player-coach ratio, where players can improve their game by having a coach nearby to correct swinging errors.

Howard has a long history of working with Fox athletes from his association as an assistant with the high school basketball program. For four years he taught physical education at Potomac Elementary School and served as the NWSC athletic director during a short tenure.

Although King George fell short in the playoffs last season, the Foxes won the 2009 Battlefield District Championship. Taylor also had the privilege of coaching arguably the greatest golfer in area sports history, Hannah Pierce. Pierce won three individual championships in a row.
A bonus for Howard will be Taylor’s continuance of the King George Parks & Recreation Hooked on Golf program. The summer program is the primary feeder system for the King George High School program.

“He seems to have built a really big interest in golf with his big turnouts,” Howard said. “He has done a good job of getting kids involved at a young age.”

Howard currently works at NSWC in Department W62, the Human Systems Integration Department.
From July 25-28, Howard will feature a coach’s golf camp at Cameron Hills. The camp will focus on the golf skill-set associated with seventh to 12th grade students.
