Louisa County High School’s athletics program went with a familiar face when selecting the program’s next head coach.

LCHS Athletic Director George Stanley introduced Will Patrick as head coach during a press conference on Wednesday, January 10th. Patrick has spent the past 10 seasons coaching in Louisa, including the past two as the Lions’ offensive coordinator and assistant head coach.

“I’m honored to take the reigns of Louisa football,” Patrick said. “Our building blocks for success lay in our process. We may not be perfect, but we will chase perfection.”

“I am eager to support Mr. Patrick as our new head football coach, his staff, and especially our student-athletes,” Athletic Director George Stanely said.

With Patrick at the offensive helm, the Lions had their most prolific offensive season in the program’s history in 2017. The team scored a record 634 points, gained 6,200 of total offense, and set a school record for wins in a season with 14. The team’s only loss came in the Class 4 State Championship game versus Salem.

Patrick has worked with the varsity Lions program since 2010, starting as the team’s running backs coach. He also spent time coaching special teams as well as offensive and defensive line.

Patrick spent one season as the JV Lions head coach in 2009, leading the team to the Jefferson District Championship Game.

Along with being a winner on the sidelines, Patrick also has a prolific string of successes on the field. After graduating from LCHS in 2002, he went on to spend four years playing for the James Madison Dukes. Patrick played fullback for the 2004 squad, a team that won the 2004 NCAA Division I-AA Championship
