CHS Alum Billy Ammons was named the AAA Coach of the Year. Ammons was flanked by a talented team of assistant coaches including Julius Dixon, John Sorrells, Dennis Reeder, Jeff Jordan, Dale Reeves, and Guy Eckenroth.

Bill Sponsored by Rep. Bob Sheheen honoring the 1990 CHS Football team:

 

A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

 

TO CONGRATULATE THE CAMDEN HIGH SCHOOL BULLDOG FOOTBALL TEAM FOR WINNING THE 1990 STATE CLASS AAA CHAMPIONSHIP AND COACH BILLY AMMONS FOR BEING NAMED THE CLASS AAA COACH OF THE YEAR BY THE STATE NEWSPAPER.

Whereas, on Saturday night, December 1, 1990, at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, the Camden High School football team defeated a very talented Hilton Head team 13-3 to win the State Class AAA football championship; and

Whereas, this tremendous victory concluded a perfect 15-0 season for the Bulldogs which ties a state record for the most victories in one season and marks only the second time in South Carolina prep football history where this has been accomplished; and

Whereas, the last time that Camden won the state football championship was in 1964 when current head coach Billy Ammons quarterbacked that team; and

Whereas, the accomplishments of the Bulldogs this year under the leadership of Billy Ammons have brought deserved credit not only upon the members of the team and the coaching staff but upon their school, county, and State, as well; and

Whereas, one indication of the quality and talent of this group of athletes is the number of players who are actively being recruited to play college football by schools across the nation; and

Whereas, in recognition of his abilities as a head coach and in recognition of the Bulldogs’ great season, The State newspaper named Coach Ammons as its 1990 State Class AAA Coach of the Year; and

Whereas, the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, would like to publicly recognize and congratulate this talented group of young men, Coach Billy Ammons, and the rest of the coaching staff upon winning this truly deserved championship and upon receipt of these truly deserved awards. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the members of the General Assembly hereby congratulate the Camden High School Bulldog football team for winning the 1990 State Class AAA championship and Coach Billy Ammons for being named the Class AAA Coach of the Year by The State newspaper.

Be it further resolved that the members of the Camden High School football team, Coach Billy Ammons, and the rest of the coaching staff shall be recognized on an appropriate day in the Hall of the House of Representatives at the discretion of the Speaker for their accomplishments and shall be given the privilege of the floor on this occasion.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Coach Ammons and to the principal of Camden High School.
