Powell, Collins, Moss to be honored at JMC Hall of Fame banquet

Nicholas Powell and Albany Collins are South Side’s male and female athletes of the year, and Cooper Moss is the recipient of the Van and Louise Thompson Scholarship Award. They will be recognized March 28 at the 37th annual Jackson-Madison County Sports Hall of Fame banquet.

NICHOLAS POWELL, South Side’s male athlete of the year, plays football and soccer for the Hawks. A senior with a 3.1 GPA, he is a member of the Beta Club, Leadership University, theater, and choir. He attends Open Faith Ministries, where he is a member of the praise team.

He plays football and soccer at South Side.

In football, he was a four-year starter, team captain, two-time Region 6-4A defensive MVP and West Tennessee All-Star game MVP. Offensively, he had 95 carries for 563 yards and eight touchdowns. Defensively, he had 78 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, five sacks, three caused fumbles and an interception.

In soccer, he was last season’s district defensive MVP and an All-West Tennessee All-Star.

Other accomplishments include the Sports Plus Athlete of the Week, 101.5 radio MVP, 2022 winner of the Madison County Commissioner’s Cup and game MVP, and Tennessee National Guard MVP.

Powell plans to attend college on a football scholarship.

ALBANY COLLINS, South Side’s female athlete of the year, plays basketball for the Lady Hawks. A senior with a 3.6 GPA, she is ranked 31 out of 173 students and is an honor student with more than 50 community service hours. She attends Salem Baptist Church, where she sings in the choir.

She has played basketball for four years and is a two-year starter and team captain. She has helped the Lady Hawks to two state tournament appearances, including last year’s Class 3A state runner-up. She has also helped the team to district, regional and sectional championships the last two years. The Lady Hawks are currently No. 1 in the state and competing at the state tournament.

As a senior in games played through February 9, she averaged 15 points, two and half rebounds, two assists and three steals per game. She has 1,110 career points while shooting 47 percent from the field, 42 percent from the 3-point arch and 80 percent from the free-throw line.

Other accomplishments include the All-District Team, All-Academic Team, All-Region Team, Sports Plus Player of the Week, BCAT Player of the Week and BCAT All-Star. She is considered one of the best 3-point shooters to ever play at South Side.

Collins plans to attend college on a basketball scholarship.

COOPER MOSS, the recipient of the Van and Louise Thompson Scholarship Award, plays golf and baseball for the Hawks. The senior has a GPA of 3.89 and is ranked 11 out of 173 students.

Moss has been a Miss SSHS escort, Junior Rotarian, member of the Beta Club, and a Wendy’s High School Heisman school winner. He owns his own landscaping and lawncare company.

The Van and Louise Thompson Scholarship honors the memory of Van and Louise Thompson. Van is a Hall of Fame inductee and former Jackson High School multi-athlete star. He played tailback on two National Championship football teams at the University of Tennessee in the late 1930s and early 1940s when the Volunteers went to the Orange, Rose and Sugar Bowls. Louise was also a UT graduate and taught school in Jackson for more than 25 years.

HAWK ALUM: Smith makes college debut

South Alabama pitcher Tyler Smith made his first collegiate start Wednesday in the Jaguars’ 5-4 win over visiting Nicholls State. The 2022 South Side graduate faced nine batters in 2.1 innings, giving up two hits and a run with four strikeouts.

“It was exactly what we wanted with his first start,” South Alabama coach Mark Calvi said. “You could see his velocity went down a little bit out of the stretch, and that’s something we need to clean up. And there is some adrenaline going. You don’t want to leave him out there when he doesn’t quite have his best stuff right now in his first start where he leaves on a sour note. He knows leaving there he has to be better out of the stretch and maintain his velocity, but I thought it was a great night for him.”

Last spring, Smith helped lead the Hawks to a Region 6-3A championship and appearance in the Class 3A sectional game.

Smith announced his commitment to South Alabama after a visit in July 2021. He made it official with a signing ceremony Nov. 10, 2021.

South Alabama (4-1) plays host to Nebraska for a three-game series this weekend.

HALL OF FAME: Coach Johnny Growe (702 wins) gets well-deserved recognitions

By BRAD GASKINS / [email protected]

Coach Johnny Growe was inducted last month into the Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame and will be inducted next month into the Jackson-Madison County Sports Hall of Fame.

That’s two enshrinements in a 10-week span.

“It’s humbling,” said Growe, who won 600 baseball games in 29 years as South Side’s head coach from 1985-2013.

The TBCA Hall of Fame induction ceremony was Jan. 21 in Nashville. The Jackson-Madison County Hall of Fame ceremony is March 28 at the Carl Perkins Civic Center.

“I was surprised when I got that call and I was surprised when I got the call a month later about the other one,” he said. “You don’t really do it for that reason, but you always appreciate the fact that someone recognizes that you’re working at it.”

INDUCTION – Johnny Growe speaks during his induction into the Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame on Saturday, January 21, 2023. Growe was South Side’s head baseball coach from 1985-2013.

All told, Growe has 702 career wins as a head coach. That includes stints at Trinity Christian from 2014-2017 and Greenfield from 2019 to present. At South Side, he led the Hawks to 10 district titles, six regional titles and four state tournament appearances.

“It was a community,” he recalled of his time at South Side. “I felt like most of the parents thought I was doing right by their kids, and most of the kids acted like they appreciated it. That was the biggest reason I kept doing it. I just enjoyed coaching. I enjoyed seeing the young men and women that I was around.”

Growe, now 64, was a young man when he arrived at South Side for his first teaching position in the fall of 1981. He’d spent the previous spring student-teaching at North Side Junior High and assisting head coach Bud Sikes with North Side’s high school baseball team.

He was a South Side assistant coach for Andy Rushing for the 1983 and 1984 seasons. In 1985, he became the head baseball coach and, as part of the deal, the first head softball coach in school history.

THEN AND NOW – Left: Johnny Growe’s photo from the 1985 South Side yearbook. Right: Johnny Growe’s headshot from the 2022 season at Greenfield.

“I was running from the baseball field to the softball field to do both,” he said. “It wasn’t like I was by myself.”

Rayburn Moore and Bobby Wilson helped with softball.

“They would make sure that everybody was there and warmed up when I got there to the ballgame,” Growe said. “We didn’t play at the same site.”

For home games, baseball was played at South Side, softball at Malesus. For away games, baseball and softball were always scheduled at the same school.

“Typically, the softball fields were in the city parks, and they had lights. Back then, most of the baseball fields did not,” he said. “If we went to Riverside, I’d play a 4 o’clock baseball game and we’d play a 6:30 softball game.”

Growe resigned as the head softball coach after that first season but stayed on as head baseball coach for the next 28 seasons. At various times throughout his career at South Side, he also coached basketball, cross-country and golf. He was an assistant football coach for Wilson and then Jerry Hayes.

He led the Hawks to the state baseball tournament four times and holds an overall state record of 4-7. For the record, here are those seasons:

1998 – The Hawks had an opening round win over Unicoi County but lost the next game, 6-4, to eventual champion David Lipscomb and finished third. Final record: 24-9.

2003 – The Hawks beat Meigs County, Gibbs and Ridgeway but lost to Ripley, 6-4, in the championship game. Growe was named 2A coach of the year, 2A sectional coach of the year and Jackson Sun coach of the year, among other accolades. Final record: 29-11.

2005 – The Hawks lost the opening game to David Lipscomb and were eliminated with a loss to Loudon. Final record: 32-8.

2010 – The Hawks went 0-2 with losses to eventual champion Gibbs and DeKalb County. Final record: 31-11.

While the 2003 team did have the best finish at the state tournament, it wasn’t the most talented team Growe ever had at South Side.

“They were a very good team,” Growe said of the 2003 squad. “They just gelled together and had really good chemistry, and we had a couple of breaks. All of those years that we went, there was a play that we could go back to and say, ‘If he doesn’t catch this ground ball … if he doesn’t hit this double.’ It all came down to there was a play that got us to that level.”

There were other South Side teams in the 1980s and 1990s that would have made it to state under the eight-team format.

“Back when I first started, we actually got to what would be the state level now,” he said. “We got into the final eight, I think, three or four times. Back then, only the top four advanced to state. Now, the top eight advance in each class.”

700 WINS – Coach Johnny Growe poses for a photo with his Greenfield team after reaching 700 career wins last season.

Growe has been married to his wife, Rita, for nearly 45 years. Prior to talking with HawkNation for this story, she advised him not to mention any players by name. There were just too many over those 29 years. Growe managed to follow that sound advice, save for one.

Jeff Wyatt played for Growe from 1995-1998. He was an assistant coach for Growe from 2007-2013 and succeeded Growe as head coach starting in 2014.

“As a ninth grader, he batted fourth or fifth and stayed in the top four hitters his entire career. He was a very good ball player,” Growe said. “There was no doubt in my mind he was going to be a great coach. He was too much of a competitor. He was a whole lot more intense than I was. If I had any influence on him at all, it would probably be that he needed to kind of chill just a little bit.”

Reflecting on all his years at South Side, Growe said he was especially proud of how the community came together to build – and then rebuild – the current baseball field.

“The field that we have now we built in 1998 and had to rebuild it in 1999 after the tornado, so we’d had it a year when the tornado destroyed it,” he said. “We were real proud of the fact that the whole community came together to build it the first time, but probably just as proud – if not more proud – of the finished product after the devastation.”

The field was not insured. It was rebuilt with the help of private donations.

Prior to the facility opening, baseball games were played on what is now the soccer field at the corner of Harts Bridge and Chester Levee. It also doubled as the football practice field.

“In the 14 years that we played some games there, there were only about three home runs hit that they were not in-the-parkers that you ran them out,” Growe said. “Three that were hit over the fence going toward the football stadium, the left field fence.”

The Hawks played at Young Park in Pinson for five years but still used the old field as the practice field.

In his final seasons with the Hawks, Growe said it was gratifying to coach second generation players.

“I was having my players’ kids that were coming up and starting to play for me,” he said. “That was always a big deal to see a parent coming up that they used to be a player for me.”

What he remembers most about South Side, though, was all the students and players he had over the years.

“The biggest satisfaction was the relationships I had over the years and the young people I got to be around,” he said. “Even though I’m not young, they kind of kept me feeling young.”
