Westminster Taps Earl Little to Lead Football Program
In a school-wide assembly on Tues., Apr. 19, Westminster Christian School introduced former Miami Hurricane and nine-year NFL veteran Earl Little as their new head football coach. Little spent the last two years returning Jackson High School to football relevance in the tough Class 5A District 16 while navigating one of the toughest non-district schedules in South Florida. Victories over Norland, Northwestern, and Booker T. Washington during that span attest to his ability to spur a team to great heights under a new leader.
