When a car accident took the life of Head Soccer Coach Jed Lacey in August, it rocked the community and devastated his friends, family and the soccer program at Dawson County High School. Lacey left a legacy on the field and in the hearts of many of the individuals that he interacted with. A pillar of the community, he was a special education teacher, an assistant football coach and head coach of both the girls and boys soccer teams. "[Coach Lacey] loved every one of his players as if they were his own children. He was an incredible mentor to those of us who had the privilege of coaching with him and I've never known anyone else more dedicated, more passionate and more caring about his players than he was," said Varsity boys Head Coach, Derek Waters.
