Darryl Free

Edgewood athletic director Darryl Free will add softball to his head coaching duties to go along with football and boys basketball. 

After new regulations were put in place at Edgewood, the softball program was in search of a new head coach despite winning two consecutive state championships. Athletic director Darryl Free, who is also the head coach of the football team and boys basketball team, will add softball to his duties according to a release from Edgewood headmaster Jay Adams on Wednesday.

Edgewood is 90-35-1 in the last two seasons. The Wildcats are coming off the AISA-AA state title earlier this month under coach Mark Segrest. 

"I am excited to have the opportunity to lead our softball team,” Free said according to the release. “We have many amazing girls in this program, and I look forward to continuing our recent success."
