Tuesday, 22 July 2014

MOUNT VERNON, Ga. — Brewton-Parker College has announced the hiring of four head coaches—Gavin Chapman, Errick Fox, Ben Moore and Matthew Payne—to lead six of the Barons' athletic programs.

(Gavin Chapman)

Chapman, a 2011 graduate of Brewton-Parker, will lead the Baron's men's basketball program after serving as an assistant coach for the women's basketball team (2012-13) and men's basketball team (2013-14).
While at Brewton-Parker, Chapman was a shooting guard for the Barons, earning three varsity letters before becoming a student assistant coach for the varsity team and head coach of the junior varsity team during his senior year.
Chapman holds a Bachelor's degree in Sports & Fitness, with a minor in coaching, from Brewton-Parker and a Master's degree in Sports Administration from Eastern Kentucky—where he served as a graduate assistant for the Exercise & Sports Science Department.

(Errick Fox)

Another former student-athlete and 2011 graduate of Brewton-Parker, Fox will take over the Baron's men's and women's track and cross country programs after serving as the assistant baseball coach for the past three seasons.
Fox was a four-year varsity letter winner for the Barons baseball team, compiling a .370 career batting average and a .981 fielding percentage. He was named to the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) Baseball Champions of Character Team during his senior year.


(Ben Moore)

Moore, a former men's soccer student-athlete at Brewton-Parker from 1996-1997, returns to his alma mater to coach the women's soccer and softball programs. Moore had previously served as the Baron's men's soccer head coach from 2000-2005, following stints as a semi-professional soccer player in Arizona and California from 1998-2000.
Despite playing only two seasons for the Barons, Moore still ranks as one of the best goalkeepers in Brewton-Parker history. He's tied with Scott Carney for the most shutouts in a season (7) and in a career (10) and ranks third in goals-against average in a single season (2.40) behind Carney (1.33) and Grant Norton (1.82).



(Matthew Payne)

Payne will get his first collegiate coaching experience at the helm of the Brewton-Parker men's soccer program after successful coaching stints in the high school and club ranks.
After concluding his playing career as a four-year men's soccer varsity letter winner for NCAA Division II Young Harris (Ga.), Payne has coached at his high school alma mater—Heritage High School, Athens Academy, Athens United, Oconee Futbol Club and most recently at Westminster Christian Academy—where he also served as athletics director.
Payne holds a Bachelor's degree in Business Economics from Young Harris and a Bachelor's degree in Business Management from the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia.
