Roanoke, Va. – High school football coaches from across Virginia are forming the Commonwealth Football Coaches Association (@CFBCA20) to give the more than 5-thousand coaches a collective voice in the direction of prep football in the state.

According to published reports, the state has been divided into five regions, with 15 coaches representing each region. The Association hopes to be officially recognized by the VHSL soon. Area coaches involved include Heritage coach Brad Bradley, Liberty coach Chris Watts and William Fleming coach Jamar Lovelace, all representing the Central Virginia region of the state.
