Kyle Hockman | McEachern | Offense

Kyle Hockman became the 7th Head Coach in the 53 year history of McEachern football when he was hired in 2008. He had the unenviable position of following a “legend” in Coach Jimmy Dorsey. In spite of this perspective, the Indian leader has passed this initiation with flying colors and has been able to bring McEachern football to a position of prominence that has been extraordinary for current players and has shown great honor and respect for past traditions. Coach Hockman came to McEachern after a successful stint as Head Coach at Campbell H.S. helping to have a 2 year run with a record of 15 wins and 7 losses with an impressive playoff win over Central Gwinnett in his first year as head coach at the school.
