Legendary football coach to return to Thomson

THOMSON - Luther Welsh, athletic director and head football coach at Thomson High School, has decided to stay on “at least another year.”

The 77-year-old coach Welsh said he feels relieved and looks forward to returning to lead the Bulldogs in their quest to once again become competitive in football. His Bulldogs finished with a dismal 2-8 record this past season – his only losing season in 18 years at Thomson.

“I had a heart-to-heart talk with the principal and school superintendent about two weeks ago and I told them then that I would come back for at least another year,” coach Welsh said today.

Welsh has led Thomson to three state championships. His overall coaching record is 324-178-6
