Longtime Union Coach Allison Resigns
Longtime head coach of the Union County Panthers football program, Brian Allison, announced his resignation after 19 seasons in Blairsville. Allison, who notched 121 of his 146 career wins at Union County, is taking the head coaching gig at the brand new East Forstyh.
He coached the Panthers from 1996-2001 and again from 2008-2020. In between, from 2002-07, he coached at Winder-Barrow. Allison is the winningest coach in Union County history, and guided the team to its first-ever playoff win in 2019. The 2020 season was anything but normal, and resulted in a 4-6 truncated season, though they still made the playoffs.
