THE BEST FOOTBALL COACHING JOB (423)

Joe had been told by Henry “Blackie” Trevathan that the best high school football job in North Carolina was the one he’d just been hired for in Rocky Mount, NC.
Joe agreed to be an assistant under Henry at Rocky Mount. Henry said he’d pick Joe up in Chapel Hill to carry with him to Rocky Mount, August 1964.
As they rode east on NC 64 the rode split. Sixty-four East goes to Rocky Mount, Henry took 264 East toward Wilson. Joe corrected him. “Coach – Rocky Mount’s that way.” Henry – “Oh, didn’t I tell you, I’ve changed my mind, we’re going to Wilson’s Fike High School.” Joe: “but you said the best football job in North Carolina is in Rocky Mount.”
Henry: “They moved that job to Wilson.”
