I'm proud to say that this is my 15th year as an educator. I taught at Wadley High School for 6 years, New Brockton for 6, Geneva City Schools for 2 and 1 here at GCHS!


     I am proud to say that I graduated from GCHS in 1995! Since than I have had some tremendous life experiences that have contributed to my goal of being a well rounded individual ready to educate our young people. Upon graduation from high school, I enrolled at Enterprise State community college where I got a head start on my college education. After a year there, I transferred to Auburn University where I played football for three years under the instruction of Head coaches Terry Bowden and Tommy Tubberville. I was also under the instruction of quarterbacks coach Jim Bo Fisher during this time. While at Auburn I received degrees in World Georgraphy and Physical Education. 

     My first teaching experience  was at Wadley High School in Randolph county. I taught physical education and driver ed. while there and was a football coach for the varsity football team. I was also the head basketball and baseball coach for the six seasons that I was there.  This was a great experience, as we had the best football program in the state during my six years there.

     From Wadley, I left and took the head coaching position at New Brockton High School. I was there for six successful years and have the second longest tenure of any coach who ever lead the program. While there I also taught health and physical education and started a student band program that many students enjoyed. 

     After leaving New Brockton I moved to Geneva high School where I stayed for two years teaching health, driver education and physical ed. I was the offensive coordinator for the football team and the head b-team basketball coach.

     It's truly a pleasure to be the head football coach here at my Alma Mater. I have a great sense of pride for this school and for the success of our students. I look forward to working with each and every one of them and I hope to be a leader in the current and future success of our school.

                                                     Sincerely, Jim Bob Striplin
