Athletic Director Jamie Ferguson Named AD of the Year
Athletic Director Jamie Ferguson has been named the 2020–2021 AD of the Year!
The Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association recognized Coach Ferguson as their AD of the Year at their Coaches Championship Awards Banquet in Montgomery on Friday, July 23.
While we at Bayside are well aware of the talent and leadership that Coach Ferguson brings to our campus and our community as a whole, we are thrilled that he has been recognized on the state level for his accomplishments.
During an immensely challenging year, the administration, faculty, staff, and coaches at Bayside Academy rose to the occasion, and Coach Ferguson worked tirelessly to make sure Bayside’s athletes were able to compete and succeed. Coach Ferguson organized safe and supportive home games and travel for our players, worked through the logistics of 11 different sports offered at Bayside, and oversaw a tremendously successful youth development program. On top of all of that, he coached the state champion boys soccer team.
In the 2020–2021 school year alone, Bayside Academy brought home four team state championships, multiple individual state championships, and four state runners up titles. Additionally, eight student-athletes have committed to playing collegiate sports next year. These accolades and accomplishments are a direct result of Coach Ferguson’s dedication. He is a tremendous asset to Bayside Academy, and we are proud to call him an Admiral! We look forward to the very bright future of Bayside Academy.
