Truly, a shame.

Johnson High School’s Vice Principal Mike Adcock has passed away. He had a devastating car accident at the beginning of the school year, and faced death during his recovery many times. After losing his leg (and maybe 70 pounds), he returned to the school to do some light work a few months ago.

Nothing too strenuous. The plan was to slowly groom him back into a normal schedule, while acknowledging the horrible car accident that had left him weak and worn.

At JHS that day, Principal Damon Gibbs gave a rousing speech in the gym as the entire school stood and applauded Coach Adcock. And the Coach, emotional yet gaining confidence, took the microphone to say a few words.

And a few months later- his life is gone.

Rest in peace Coach.
