Morman takes over at North Meck
CHARLOTTE — Former Richmond Senior football player Eric Morman was recently named the new head football coach at North Mecklenburg High School, as reported by the Charlotte Observer.
Morman spent the past two years at West Stanly, where he recently led the team to its first winning season since 2010 and helped it score the most points in a season (361) since 2005. The 27-year-old coach will replace Brad Baker — who stepped down in December — on the North Mecklenburg sidelines.
While at Richmond, Morman won four consecutive conference titles and appeared in two state semifinals under coach Ed Emory. He then played wide receiver at Catawba College and was named team captain in his final season.
Morman, 27, is the son of Charles and Kay Morman, who reside in Rockingham.
