One of Stephens County High School’s long time coaches is calling it a wrap in his baseball coaching career for his hometown community. At the May 8 Baseball Banquet celebration, Coach Greg McCall announced his retirement from the position of head baseball coach.  McCall served as Indians’ head baseball coach for 11 years after 4 years as an assistant.  

Prior to coming to Stephens County, Coach McCall was at Hart County for 18 years with 8 of those as head coach, giving him a total of 33 years of coaching high school baseball.  Among the milestones of his coaching career, he has more than 20 former players who are in the high school coaching ranks.  Coach McCall has accumulated 272 overall wins and appeared several times in the state playoffs, which included an Elite 8 appearance in 2017 and the Sweet 16 in 2022.  He was named the All State Dugout Club Coach of the Year in 2018.

Speaking of his time as Coach, McCall said, “I am very proud of so many individual and team accomplishments through these 15 years. We have prided ourselves with putting a very competitive team on the field with a bigger part of the coaching focused on growing young men that our Stephens County community can be very proud of. I would like to thank this great Stephens Co. community for all their support over the years…at this time, I feel my need as a husband, father, and son to my family have led me to this decision to retire from my head baseball position.“

Stephens County High School Athletic Director Chuck King, stated “Coach McCall is a very loyal, caring, and thoughtful coach within our community; he will be missed at third base next spring.  I am thankful to have these four years to grow Stephens County Athletics with a man like Coach McCall’s character and actions.  Coach McCall goes above and beyond for all the students, faculty, and staff of our Indian Nation.  I know his family will benefit from the time that Coach McCall can now commit to them.”  

Jessica Simmons, Stephens County High School Principal, says Coach McCall will continue in his role as a science teacher and assistant football coach.
