STRASBURG -At halftime of their football game vs. Page County on Friday the Ram family will gather to honor one of the greatest Coaches in Virginia High School history. Glenn Proctor stepped down at the end of the 2007 season- his 44TH as the Head Coach of the Purple & White.
Coach Proctor was one of a kind both on and off the gridiron and was always up to talking with anyone that wanted a moment or two of his time. I will always remember my first time covering his Rams (away game at Madison County in 2006) and not knowing about his legacy at the Shenandoah County school.
I was new to the Valley and was not aware that I was interviewing a Head Coach that was approaching the 300 victory plateau. Coach was just an incredibly considerate individual that was willing to answer any question you might have.
Here is hoping that the ceremony on Friday night goes off with the same amount of Class that Coach Proctor displayed for over 44 years.
