South Johnston High’s assistant boys basketball coach Brody Massengill has been named the school’s new athletic director.
“I was born and raised in the Trojan community. As a former athlete of South Johnston, I am a product of great coaches who helped mentor me and instill the qualities of teamwork, sportsmanship, and pride in my school and community,” said Massengill. “I am excited to work with the students, coaches, and community to make the Trojan athletic program the best it can be.”
Massengill graduated from South Johnston High School in 2007. He attended Fayetteville State University where he obtained a degree in Health and Physical Education. He and his wife, Mary Beth, reside in Benson.
During the 2014-2015 season, he helped lead the boys basketball team to the state playoffs for the first time in five years.
“Brody has and will continue to do a great job for South Johnston High School,” said Dr. David Pearce, SJHS principal. “I am sure he will carry the Trojan athletic department to the next level.”
