WOODVILLE, Ala. — Woodville High School has tapped Tyler Vann to serve as the Panthers’ next Head Football Coach. Vann is an alum of North Sand Mountain High School where he was a three-year starting quarterback. 

Vann began his coaching career at his alma mater as Quarterbacks Coach. He went on to become an Offensive Coordinator of Arab’s Junior High team. His last two stops include a stint as Wide Receivers Coach at Scottsboro High School and most recently Quarterbacks Coach at Buckhorn High School.

Vann says the opportunity fulfills a lifelong dream and presents a chance to mold young lives.

“Being a head football coach is something I have dreamed of since I was young,” says Vann. “To have the opportunity to change lives is something I’ll forever be grateful for.”

He is also optimistic about the future outlook of the program.

“Woodville football has been headed in the right direction under Coach Powell and we look to continue that upward trajectory in the future. There is no better time to be a panther!”

The drive toward perfection is what motivates Vann to keep a competitive edge.

“They say passion is anything that motivates or drives you. I’m motivated every day to be better than I was yesterday. I heard a coach say one day, ‘the second you get complacent is the second you don’t get any better.’ My passion for football drives me to be better every day. If you’re not getting better every day that means someone is surpassing you.”

Local sports observers anticipate Vann’s coaching career to be one of longevity and success. His knowledge of the game and attention to detail is well noted. 

There is no doubt the Woodville community is excited about seeing Vann’s high powered offense hit the field this fall.
