Stratford football coach retiring

Posted: Updated:

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) -- Stratford's long-time head football coach is stepping down after 31 years. Twenty-nine of those years were spent as the head coach.

Ray Stackley has been part of the school since it opened in 1982. He won a state championship 1999, and had a record of 95-13 between 1997 and 2004.

His wife confirmed the decision Thursday afternoon. 

This past football season, Stackley led the Stratford Knights to their third ever title game. 

"Football is going to miss him. He was a winner, a productive guy who worked hard every day. I'll miss being in meetings with him," said Summerville head coach John McKissick. "He always saw the big picture, knew the whole game. I will miss him."
