Ex-Reb skipper Hill
on the move again

Former Obion County Central head football coach Chris Hill is on the move — again.
Hill, who led the Rebels to a 13-9 mark and the state playoffs in both his seasons at the Rebel helm in 2001 and ’02, has resigned at Parkway (La.) High School to take a job at Wynne (Ark.).
It is the fifth job switch for Hill since he left OCCHS.
Hill led Parkway to a 10-2 season and the second round of the state playoffs last season.
He cited family health concerns for his latest move, expressing a desire to be closer to his father, who had a stroke last Aug.
