DeKalb Middle School Saints football coach Tad Webb will be coaching the DeKalb West School Dawgs baseball team this season. The 7th grade math teacher was the assistant coach of the high school baseball team under Head Coach Scott Odom. Webb has been managing the pigskin plays for the Saints for about six years. A former high school baseball player in the mid 90s, Webb is building his own team at home. His third boy, Tate, was recently born. He and his wife, Tracy, have two other sons, Tucker and Ty.
Meanwhile, five students from DeKalb West made the cut for the 2013-2014 baseball team during try-outs this month. 8th graders Brady Driver, Jessie Smith, and Paxton Butler return along with 7th graders Grayson Redmon and Garrett Driver.
