Pate Harrison named Elba Tigers Head Football Coach

(WTVY) -- Pate Harrison has been introduced as the new Elba Tigers Head Football Coach and Athletic Director after a unanimous (5-0) vote at Tuesday's Elba City School Board hearing.

Harrison had been the coach at Dale County High School for six seasons where he coached the Warriors to a (46-24) record and helped guide the team to five playoff appearances over his tenure.

Harrison has built a family-like culture in Midland City and is taking over a team that is no stranger to the playoffs.

Elba has won seven state titles including a run to three straight State Championship appearances including a Championship run in 2015.

A native of New Brockton, Harrison is excited to return closer to home and will meet with the team Wednesday at 9:00am.
