Meet the Teacher
North Pontotoc High School has a new head football coach this year, Coach Andy Crotwell. He and his wife, Heather, have been married for 17 years. They have three children: Daniel, who is eleven and in the sixth grade; Anne, who is nine and in the fourth grade; and Mary who is five and in kindergarten. They also have a family dog, Phoebe, named “Frobe” because she came from the pound.
This is Coach Crotwell’s 19th year to coach. He began at Hernando High as an assistant coach and teaching U.S. History. The next year, he went to Walton High in Marietta, Georgia, as an assistant coach and taught world geography. He returned to Mississippi two years later to be an assistant coach at Tupelo High where he taught various social studies classes over the eleven years he was there. For the past four years, Coach Crotwell has served as head football coach and taught world history at Caledonia High.
Coach Crotwell is a graduate of Millsaps College, where he majored in history. In his spare time, he spends time with his kids. He likes hiking with the family, mountain biking with his kids, road biking when he needs some alone time. He likes to grill and enjoys reading. Coach Crotwell is also a fan of The Walking Dead (a popular t.v. show if you have been living under a rock).
As far as a favorite team, he is a fan of any and all schools where a former player is playing for that school.
