By ROB HAMILTONMCSSports@civitasmedia.comJerry Williams will make his debut as a head coach this August for the Cardington Pirates as he steps into the job after Brandon Dodrill held it for the past four seasons, compiling a 16-24 record. The coach has a lot of experience with the sport, though, playing at Big Walnut High School and then at West Liberty State College. After graduating college, he served as an assistant at Big Walnut for a couple years before entering the business world. However, the gridiron lured him back and in recent years, he was been an assistant at both high schools (Centerburg, Mount Vernon and Big Walnut) and college (Ohio Wesleyan University) before taking on the Cardington job.
