New Coach at Phoebus

Daquan Romero

In the past eight years, Phoebus has won four state titles. Last year's 15-0 team produced seven Division I signees, including Clemson commit QB Tajh Boyd. Head Coach Bill Dee steps down after compiling a record of 215-64, including a run of 98-9 the past eight years to finish his career. Now there is a new sheriff in town.

Stan Sexton has been named the new head football coach of the Phoebus Phantoms. Sexton was an assistant to Dee from 1991-2004 before becoming the head coach at Warwick in 2005. Now Sexton is back coaching the high school he once graduated from.

Tight end Daquan Romero talked about his new coach this evening with VTInsider.com

"I like Coach Sexton," says Romero. "He seems like a great guy. I am glad they hired someone who graduated from here, it is nice to know that he will keep this tradition going. Coach talked to the team at our first meeting the other day. He talked about how it feels good to come back to Phoebus. He went here and he used to assistant coach here. Coach told us he is honored to have the head coaching job, and that he is going to keep the winning tradition going. He is going to stay hard, stay tough on us. He doesn't want us to think that because he's a new coach that he's going to be easy on us, or have us think that we can do what we want and get away with it. He knows how it is and how it has been for twenty years now, so I don't expect much to change."

"I don't really know him right now, but I'm sure I'll get to know him. I am ready for the season to start so we can really see what he brings to the table. We used to beat up on Warwick, but hopefully everything goes well. We were 15-0 last year, and Coach thinks he can do it again. Warwick made it to the playoffs as well, so I know he knows his stuff."

Phoebus will be loaded with talent again this year, keep an eye on standouts FB/LB Chaz Robinson, RB/S Colby Goodwyn, LB Caleb Taylor, and TE/DE Daquan Romero.
