Mark Fischer Returns to Louisa County HS to Coach Football Team
Mark Fischer had a record of 58-21 in seven seasons at Louisa
Mark Fischer was introduced Wednesday morning at Louisa County High School as the Lions new head football coach.
Fischer previously coached at Louisa from 2004-2010, and replaces Jon Meeks, who left to become the head coach at Brookville High School in his hometown of Lynchburg on January 14th.
"It happened fast," says Fischer. "The first thing I did was call Jon when he got his opportunity, and I wanted to make sure it was good with him, and we talked about it. Not many people get the opportunity to come home, and I get that opportunity, so my family and I are real excited."
Fischer had a record of 58-21 in seven seasons with the Lions, and he led Louisa to the state title game in 2006.
Fischer coached Louisa to a 10-0 record his last season at LCHS.
"I don't know if it makes it easier or not," says Fischer. "My dad says I'll be competing with myself. But the past is the past. The future is all that matters. That's all we're looking forward to, is what we're going to do from here on out."
Fischer has spent the last three seasons as the head coach at St. James High School in South Carolina.
He had a record of 8-22 after taking over a program which has never had a winning season.
