W.T. White High School has promoted an assistant football coach to be the school’s new head football coach and athletic coordinator.

Kenchee Ross also previously served as the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for W.T. White.

Under Ross’ leadership, the team set a school record for most points, and he helped the team achieve consecutive playoff appearances for the first time in 40 years.

“I am very excited and honored to lead W.T. White High School’s athletic department,” Ross said in a news release. “I am motivated by the opportunity to lead our rising football team to new heights as we strive to become a championship football program.”

Before coming to White, Ross spent 10 seasons at Lancaster High School. He has also coached at Terrell High School, South Oak Cliff High School, Teresa B. Lee Academy, David W. Carter High School and Greenville High School.

He has coached two MVP quarterbacks, helped 70 athletes secure college scholarships and coached four athletes now playing in the NFL.
