Recently, Nease’s beloved football head coach, Tim Krause has left Nease to continue coaching at one of his old stomping grounds, Bishop Kenny High School. In his place he has left a vacancy for the football head coach position. This spot will be filled by Collin Drafts, a native of Beaufort, South Carolina. Previously the head coach of AC Flora High School in Columbia, SC, Drafts took over and led his previous team to a 9-3 season after a winless season the year prior. He has also coached for East River High School in Orlando, Florida. He transformed East River’s team by taking them to a 6-5 playoff season directly after a 1-9 season in 2015.
Drafts has had many successes coaching football, however, he also succeeded in the world of college football as well. While in college, Drafts played quarterback for Charleston Southern University and was awarded the 2005 Big South Offensive Player of the Year after he led the CSU Buccaneers to their very first Big South Championship.
