Clarksville Christian School (CCS) President Brad Moser has announced in a press release that championship-winning coach Chuck Cooper will lead the Centurion baseball program and serve as varsity head coach beginning with the 2022-2023 school year.
“Clarksville Christian School is delighted to enthusiastically welcome Coach Chuck Cooper to the CCS family! His winning mentality and standard of excellence produce champions on the field,” Clarksville Christian School President Moser said in a statement. “More importantly, his way of coaching and mentoring inspires players to become better people in their lives outside of the game of baseball.”
Coach Cooper comes from Scotts Hill High School in Reagan, Tennessee, where he led the Lions to a 35-26 record from 2020-22 and earned a district championship in the 2021 season, according to the press release. Prior to working at Scotts Hill, Cooper spent 13 years as head coach for the Jackson Christian Eagles. From 2007-2020, his teams posted a 307-167 record, while winning eight district championships and making seven state tournament appearances. Cooper led the Eagles to two TSSAA State Runner-Up titles (2007 and 2010) and two TSSAA State Championships (2008 and 2014).
Cooper has accumulated an overall record of 342-193 in his 18 years of high school coaching, the press release notes.
“I am excited to join Dr. Moser and the CCS family! Using the avenue of baseball in Clarksville/Montgomery County as a tool to mold people for Christ, we will do more than just win baseball games,” coach Chuck Cooper said in a statement. “With God’s continued blessings, we will impact lives, create the next generation of leaders, and teach our players how to become the men, husbands, fathers and workers that God made them to be.”
Founded in 2007, Clarksville Christian School is a private, pre-K-12 school in its home region of Clarksville/Montgomery County.
