JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County High School has found its new Cougars’ soccer coach. On Tuesday, it was announced by Athletic Director Matt Price that Dustin “Dusty” Davis will fill the vacancy left by Jason Austin, who stepped down after the 2023 season. Davis takes on the head coaching position of the boys’ high school soccer team.

Davis spoke about his background and how he got into coaching soccer. Coach Davis said that when he was growing up, there was no soccer program in Campbell County. Ultimately, it was his children that got him into coaching the sport. When his kids decided to play soccer, he was asked to help coach the team. Davis accepted, and he has been getting promotions from that point forward. 

When the Campbell County United Middle School coach, Matt Schroeder, who is also the new boys’ assistant head coach at CCHS, left to go help coach at the high school level, Davis took over the head coaching job for the middle school team. For the past ten years, Davis has been head coach of the girls’ middle school soccer team, and he has also has experience coaching the boys’ middle school team.   

Davis said he is looking forward to “taking the step-up to the high school level.”

Head Coach Dustin Davis and Assistant Head Coach Matt Schroeder will lead their Cougars out on the soccer field beginning in February, when official practices start, and in March, when the Cougars will play their first game of the Davis Era. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/27/2023-6AM)
