LaFevers Named Volleyball Coach at SCHS

The Stephens County Indians Athletic Department has announced the hiring of a new volleyball coach.

Athletic Director Chuck King has named John LaFevers the new volleyball coach at the school.

LaFevers has been working in the position since March of this year. LaFevers and his family have lived in Toccoa since 2006 and his wife Allison is a teacher at Big A Elementary School. His coaching experience goes back to helping coach a 9th grade basketball team in Dacula, GA in 2003. He then served as the assistant boys varsity basketball coach at Trinity Classical School and then head boys basketball coach there. From there LaFevers transitioned to head boys basketball coach and later athletic director for a homeschool sports program called Cross Athletics. He made the move to public education in 2017 working at Rabun County High School and serving as assistant varsity girls basketball coach and head JV girls basketball coach. LaFevers moved to Stephens County High School in 2021 and served one year as the assistant girls varsity basketball coach last year under Laura Baker.

LaFevers tells WNEG “ I am so excited to be here at home in Toccoa and to lead a volleyball program that is on the rise with back-to-back state tournament bids. I look forward to the challenge of continuing to build the program and becoming even more deeply invested in the wonderful community of Toccoa and Stephens County.”

SCHS Athletic Director Chuck King says LaFevers “ brings an emphasis on intentional community effort and is passionate about our players and coaches seeing themselves as more than just a part of the volleyball team but also a part of our community here in Stephens County.”

The Indians Volleyball Team is scheduled to open play on August 9th at Tallulah Falls School.
