Tuesday, April 23, 2013 — Albemarle High School head football coach Danny Akins made a surprising move recently accepting the head coaching position at SW Randolph High School.

Since taking the Albemarle position, Akins has posted a 41-5 record in three seasons with three of those losses being forfeits. He led the Bulldogs to the 2010 1AA state championship, as well as back-to-back appearances in the 1A Regional Finals in 2011 and 2012.

Why would someone leave a place where so much success has been enjoyed?
