Jenny Long named TFS Head Softball Coach

Tallulah Falls School (TFS) has named Jenny Long its new softball coach after Jo Kimbrel took the varsity girls basketball position. Long, who has served at TFS as the head coach for the MS girls basketball team, has a great background in softball as well. She has four years of softball head coaching experience at the varsity level at Trinity Christian School. “I’m very excited about this opportunity to lead and contribute to the softball program,” says Long. “I’m looking forward to building off last season’s success. Our focus will be on building a culture of respect, accountability, and hard work while honing the fundamental skills that are essential for success in softball. Our aim is to equip players with the tools they need to excel both as athletes and as individuals.” The program launched officially a couple of years ago, but under Kimbrel last season went 7-8 with a full JV schedule. That gave the girls a great foundation of experience in live games but also winning in the process. “I’d like to thank Dr. Peevy and Scott Neal for entrusting me with this opportunity,” adds Long. “It is my honor and privilege to have been selected. I’m eager to get started cultivating a positive and nurturing environment where our athletes can thrive both on and off the field. I am confident we can achieve great things.” “TFS is excited to have Jenny Long lead the girls softball team into its first varsity season and its initiation into the competitive GIAA league,” says Neal, the Athletic Director. Coach Long may be new to TFS this year, but certainly not new to the mission of TFS athletics or to the leadership, vision, and ability to lead young people to Be GREAT! She brings the experience and character necessary to unite young ladies in collaboration, competitiveness, and commitment to each other, to TFS, and to the community, using fastpitch softball as the tool to create seasons of significance, to develop life skills, and to forge lasting friendships and memories.” Along with four years as a softball head coach and one as an assistant, Long has 12 years as a varsity basketball head coach, eight years as a varsity volleyball head coach, and two years as a varsity lacrosse coach. She has coached several other middle school and JV teams as well. Her coaching staff will include husband Brian Long, who’s coaching background includes assisting a State Runner-Up softball team, and heading up a varsity state championship soccer team.
