trueblue82 Posted November 18, 2022 Share Posted November 18, 2022 Legendary football coach Wayne Gandy passed away this morning. Gandy is the winningest Head Football Coach in the history of Joaquin High School, amassing a record of 97-46 from 2002-2014. The signature season was an 11-3 mark and a trip to the state semifinals in 2009. Under Gandy, the Rams made 11 trips to the state playoffs, winning 4 district titles and two regional championships. He is survived by his wife Cindy, his three sons, all football coaches, Brian, Bradley and Patrick, and two grandchildren. A memorial service will be held on Monday, November 21st at Watson and Sons Funeral Home in Center. On a personal note, as a football fan, I enjoy the opportunity to visit with football coaches. I’ve had the opportunity over the years to sit down and talk at length with coaches from all of the schools in Shelby County. Coach Gandy was always great to sit down and visit with, and he always gave great post-game interviews, win or lose. He will be truly missed. 5 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
