Grayson head football coach Adam Carter resigned Tuesday morning to become head football coach at Lowndes County Schools.

Carter has spent the last four seasons with the Grayson Rams with a 45-9 record, winning the Class AAAAAAA state championship in the 2020 season and making the 2021 semifinals and quarterfinals in 2019 and 2022. Before Carter’s time at Grayson, he had two years of head coaching experience, including in 2018 at Creekview High School in Canton, Georgia.

“I consider it an honor to join the excellent program at Lowndes High School. I intend to work hard and continue the winning traditions which have long defined Lowndes Football. I am committed to building a program founded on strong relationships and trust. I will implement a plan that has proven to work over the years and create a program that prides itself on hard work, dedication, and commitment.”

Coach Carter began his career at the University of West Georgia as a graduate assistant, followed by coaching positions in Paulding County and South Carolina State. After leaving South Carolina State, he served as Defensive Coordinator for eight years with stops at Camden County High School, Marietta High School, and Reinhardt University. Among his many prestigious accomplishments, Coach Carter was named 2018 6A Coach of the Year and 2020 7A Coach of the Year.

Upon the recommendation of Dr. Shawn Haralson, the Lowndes County School Board voted to hire Adam Carter as the new Head Football Coach and Director of Football Operations for Lowndes County Schools effective December 20, 2022 with planned meetups scheduled soon.
