Loucks leaving for Rutherford Co. --
Wilson Central Principal Travis Mayfield has promoted Geoffrey German to take over the boys soccer program.
German, who will be starting his second year at WCHS in August, served last season as an assistant under former coach Jeff Loucks who will be taking a teaching position at LaVergne High. Loucks, a physics teacher, will assist with the Wolverine soccer program.
German grew up in Penfield, New York and played for a nationally ranked Penfield High School, graduating in 1995.
He went on to play at NCAA Division I Canisius College -- a member of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.
After earning a Masters degree in Education, German got his coaching start at Garrett Academy in North Charleston, S.C.
"I hope to turn this group into a team that plays to its' potential," German said. "I feel that Wilson Central, while producing some fantastic individual talent, may have missed the mark as a team."
Loucks guided the Wildcats to a record of 24-8-2 over the past two seasons and was one of the driving forces behind the launch of the 840 Challenge -- a tournament pitting Wilson County soccer teams against squads from Rutherford County.
