|FA brings aboard new football coach|
Keith Tincknell likes the small hometown atmosphere and when he saw an opening for the head coaching job at Franklin Academy he put in his resume.
Franklin Academy headmaster Phil Jackson liked what he saw, as well.
"He really knows football," Jackson said.. "All the references we checked out says he is a good disciplinarian with the students and has a good relationship with the parents. We're thrilled to death to have him."
Tincknell, 38, coached at Eastside High in Covington, Ga.,. last year. In 2006, he was head coach at Oak Forest Academy in Amite.
"Me and my family were looking for a small school in a small town that is a good place to raise our kids," Tincknell said. "I was looking for a place where the administration and booster club were wanting to have a quality athletic program to go along with quality academics. I went on the MPSA Web site and found out about the Franklin Academy job and looked into it a little bit."
Tincknell will meet with the players Wednesday at the school.
"We'll go over our summer workout program and get them ready for what we will go through when we begin practicing," Tincknell said.
Tincknell played football at Lebanon (Mo.) High School in Lebanon, and at William Jewel College. He graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor of Science. Last season he was the Offensive Coordinator at Springstead High School in Florida. He is married to Melinda and has three children, Christian age 15, Cayla age 12, and Lexi age 3.
Tincknell coach at Pahrump Valley High in Nevada in 2006 after coaching at Springstead High in Spring Hill, Fla., from 2003-05.
Tinknell worked previously at Ranger Junior College in Texas.
"I would love to run a spread offense if we have the personnel," Tincknell said. "We'll have a multiple front on defense and run multiple schemes. We'll try to get the most out of our kids as we can. We'll put in as much as they can handle. Conditioning is always a key at this level. We'll have a number of players having to go both ways."
