A new era begins at Gate City under new head coach Chris Akers

GATE CITY — It will be a new era for Gate City football this season at the head coaching position.

After 46 years at the school Bill Housewright retired and as we first told you in May Chris Akers was hired to take the job.
Akers, who came from Rural Retreat takes over a young but talented team led by quarterback Hunter Collier and it hasn’t taken this group long to get on the same page.

Gate City will open the season against Richlands on August 26th at 7pm.
