New baseball, wrestling coaches at Landrum High

Landrum High School will have new coaches leading the baseball and wrestling programs for the 2010-2011 school year.
Dennis Browns decision to step down as the head coach of Landrums baseball program for family reasons has prompted a couple coaching changes at the school.
Landrum High School Athletic Director John Cann announced this week that Ray McCallister will replace Brown as the head baseball coach, and Josh Fowler will be the new wrestling coach.
Brown recently completed his first full season leading the baseball team, after taking over for interim coach Don Miller.
He lead the Cardinals this year to a second-place finish in Region II-A and a spot in the Upper State playoffs.
“Coach Brown is a good man that would be an asset to any program,” said Cann. “He has some family health concerns he needs to devote more time to. We wish him well and appreciate his time here coaching at LHS.”
McCallister has been Landrums head wrestling coach and has served as an assistant coach for the baseball team for the past nine years, and Cann says “he is the right person for the job.”
“He has been a big part of our great baseball tradition here at LHS,” says Cann, “and we are confident he will continue to lead our program in the right direction.”
Cann says McCallister will serve as an assistant coach for the wrestling team next season so he can fully focus his attention on baseball.
Fowler will come in from Chapman High to take over for McCallister. Fowler was the head JV wrestling coach for Landrum last year, “and did a great job,” says Cann.
