MILTON, Ga. — The current head coach of the Milton Eagles, Adam Clack, has over 14 years of high school football coaching experience. Most of his coaching experience was in Forsyth County, both in South Forsyth and at West Forsyth. In Forsyth County, under the leadership of Coach Helper, Clack rose from being a position coach in 2007 to being an offensive coordinator in 2011, before eventually emerging as the head coach in 2014.
As the head coach, Clack and West Forsyth won three conference championships with solid regular season records. Clack also led the Wolverines to win the 2011 State Championship with a solid offensive line. The coach helped the team make the playoffs twice, setting an impeccable record of 20-12.
In the 2017-18 football season, Clack was appointed the new head coach of the Milton Eagles to replace coach Howie Decristofaro, who had led the Milton Eagles for six straight seasons. As a result, Clack was confronted with the task of improving on the records that Decristofaro had built in the seasons that he coached the team.
“I feel like if the right guy came in with the right message and some new and fresh ideas, that they could become a perennial contender very quickly,” Clack said when he emerged as the new head coach of the Eagles.
Clack’s wealth of experience as a successful coach in Forsyth County was a significant advantage that he used to lead the Eagles to success. In his first season with the Eagles, 2017, he led the team to an overall record of 9-3 and reached the second round of the state playoffs for the first time in many seasons.
In 2018, the team moved from being the 91st team in the state rankings to winning the state championship title. The Eagles have also recorded three consecutive season victories despite the fact that they had only been able to record a total of 346 wins, 376 losses, and 13 draws since 1950.
Coach Clack has a unique and transformational method of training. With his help, the Eagles were able to set a winning record of 13-2 in 2018, 8-4 in 2019, and 11-1 in 2020.
“It’s just kind of trying to practice what we preach,” Clack said at the 2021 media day.
Under the leadership of Coach Clack, the team also went ahead to earn an overall record of 19-5 in addition to winning the last two regional conferences and participating in postseason games.
Clack feels that every player in the team has a role to play, and as he introduces more players to his team, he places them in the best possible position on the field. By doing this, players have a better chance of realizing and exploring their talents on the field of play.
Coach Clack was honored as the Atlanta Falcons Coach of the Week Program in September 2019 for his hard work and commitment to impacting the life of student-athletes. He was also honored for building Milton football into a program of champions and for positively affecting his neighboring communities. Clack was the fourth coach to win the award for that season.
Clack is ready to continue his good work and help Milton secure more winning records and state titles.
