Teacher Spotlight with Coach Jim Dougherty


by Malekai Erwin

Maleki Erwin: How do you feel the season has gone so far?

Coach Jim Dougherty: It’s been OK. It could have been better and was rocky at times. Tuesday Pep Rally was awesome.

Erwin: How do you think the rest of the season will go?

Coach D: We still have a chance to finish the season strong.

Erwin: What is your favorite part about being a middle school football coach?

Coach D: I really enjoy practices, but the games stress me out.

Erwin: Is the Harris Middle School Football team the first team that you have coached?

Coach D: (laughs) No! This is the 86th different team from one sport or another that I have coached in my career. It seems like I have been a coach my whole life. I have coached lots of different sports, however football is my favorite.

Erwin: Thank you for your time. 

Coach D: Thank you.

Jim Dougherty is the head coach of the Harris Middle School football team and a 6th grade Social Studies Teacher.
