Coach Creasy led his Oakland High School football team to a 14-1 season, winning the Class 6A State Championship. The title was Creasy’s fourth career state championship, but his first at Oakland High School. He won three at Trousdale County (2008, 2009, 2013).
“Coach Creasy’s body of work is incredible,” said Josh Corey, Tennessee Titans Football Outreach Coordinator. “Oakland plays in one of the toughest regions in the state’s largest classification. Their run through the TSSAA playoffs this year, specifically in the semifinal and championship games, was extremely impressive. We got a first look at the team this summer in our annual 7-on-7 tournament. They took home the trophy then and they took it home again in the state championship game last Thursday. We’re proud to recognize such an outstanding team and coach.”
As the 2018 Tennessee Titans Coach of the Year, Creasy will receive a grant in the amount of $2,000 to benefit his football program, as well as an all-expense paid trip to the 2019 Pro Bowl in Orlando, Florida.
Coach Creasy’s selection also qualifies him for the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year award, honoring high school football coaches that display the integrity, achievement, and leadership exemplified by the coach with the most wins in NFL history, Don Shula. The Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year award winner – announced in January – receives $10,000 and his high school football program is awarded $15,000.
The Titans High School Coach of the Year award is an extension of the High School Game of the Week and Coach of the Week programs. Each Coach of the Week (10 total) received a grant from the Tennessee Titans in the amount of $1,000 to benefit his school’s football program. All 11 award winners – 10 Coach of the Week winners and the Coach of the Year – will be recognized during the Titans vs. Colts game on Sunday, December 30.
Coach Creasy is a 1992 graduate of Lewis County High School and is the son of Johnny and Wanda Creasy of Hohenwald. Kevin played all four years of high school football for Coach Bobby Sharp and the Panthers.
