Second year Head Football coach, Scot Keasler, came from Smyrna High School where he was the highly successful defensive coordinator.  In his five years there, his teams won two state championships and played for a third.

Coach Keasler is originally from New Iberia, Louisiana.  He grew up in a coaching family, so it seems natural that coaching is the career route he chose.  Scot played football and baseball at Barbe High School in Lake Charles, La.  Upon graduation from Barbe High, he became a member of the McNeese State University football team where his father was the head coach.  He transferred to the University of Louisiana at Monroe and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health and Human Performance.  Scot also holds a Masters Degree in Special Education from Belmont University in Nashville.  Coach Keasler’s coaching career began at Episcopal High School in Baton Rouge where he was defensive coordinator and coached both the offensive and defensive lines.  After Episcopal, he coached at Denham Springs High School in Denham Springs, Louisiana.  He coached the secondary and wide receivers for two years as well as serving as the Denham Springs defensive coordinator.  Keasler was then lucky enough to make contact with Coach Tommy Tharp, who hired him at Sycamore High School in Pleasant View, Tn.  During his three year tenure at Sycamore, Scot was the defensive coordinator and coached both the secondary and wide receivers.

When he accepted the position at Summit Coach Keasler was aware that building a brand new football program from scratch would be a huge challenge.  However, he, his staff and the players have proven that they are up for that challenge.

In the program’s first year the team consisted of only 14 sophomores and and 44 freshmen who played varsity football at the 4A level. There were no Varsity victories that first year for the young Spartans.  However there was success at the Freshman and JV level. 

Summit did make history in the first game of the 2011 season with a play that was all over the internet.  In their inaugural game, the Spartans received the kickoff as the very first play.  In that play Philip Sheary caught the ball and raced 97 yards down the field for Summit’s first play ever and for their first touchdown ever. 

Now in their second season, with a still very young team, the Spartans are looking forward to improving on their record from last year and to continuing to build their program.

Coach Keasler still believes that with the right football staff and the continued support from the administration and faculty, parents and the community the Spartans can be built into a football program that all will be proud.  He continues to believe that the main goal is to produce not just outstanding football players, but, most importantly, outstanding citizens.  It is an all-around team effort.
