SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Dorman High School Athletics announced that Jake Morris will be the next head coach for their football program.

Morris has been a part of the team’s staff for nine years and served as the Associate Head Coach during the 2022 season before becoming the interim coach after Dustin Curtis resigned in February.

“Coach Morris has been an intricate part of our athletic program and is a product of Spartanburg School District Six, Athletic Director Jon Stoehr said. “We are thankful to have someone lead our program who is fully committed to our students and the District Six family. We are confident this will be a smooth transition for our players and coaches.”

Morris also played football at Dorman in high school and was a captain of their 2009 state championship team.

“Dorman is home for Jake, where he was an outstanding football player and an excellent assistant coach, Principal Bryant Roberson said. “I am certain that under his leadership, we will continue our Cavalier tradition of excellence and provide stability and continuity to our football program.”

During Morris’ time as a coach at Dorman, the program has had a record of 83-29, won four region championships, and appeared in three state championship games.

“My family and I are so honored for this opportunity, Morris said. “This is a lifelong dream come true and we are so excited to see what the future holds for the Cavaliers.”
