Craig Day

Assistant Track Coach-Throws

Girls Track & Field

Coach Day rejoined the Jaguar Coaching Staff in Spring 2015 as our Shot Put and Discus coach.  He is a proud FCHS Alumnus from the Class of 1977.  He still holds the Shot Put School Record of 53’ 11”. The then Head Coach Major Wells, along with Coaches’ Morris and Ake, were his coaches back then… Coach Day graduated from VA Tech (‘81) with a B.A. in Geography which he would use for 31 years at the Defense Intelligence Agency where he retired from in Jan 2015.  Interestingly, Coach Day actually taught at FCHS right out of Tech, first year as a substitute teacher and then the following year as a Biology Teacher! At the end of the second year he accepted his "career" job at DIA. While teaching here he began his coaching experience with the track team.  Once the Defense Department hired him (June 1983) he would periodically come back, when requested, to offer pointers to the students.  Coach Day is quite pleased at this unique opportunity to return, yet again, to his beloved high school and its awesome student athletes!  “Practice, practice, practice” is his philosophy re success with shot and discus along with being a student of the physics of the sport.
