Former Camden High School head football coach and athletic director Billy Ammons, second from left and joined by his wife Lynn, was honored at last month’s South Carolina Football Coaches Association clinic in advance of his being inducted into the South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame to be held in Charleston in July. Among those in attendance at the coaches clinic were new Camden head football coach and athletic director Brian Rimpf (left) and outgoing CHS head football coach and athletic director Jimmy Neal (right.) The three men are the three most recent head football coaches in the 122-year history of the program at the school. Ammons, who both quarterbacked and coached the Bulldogs to state titles before retiring as a head coach following the 1997 season, is part of a seven-member 2016 SCACA class which will be formally inducted in a July 24 ceremony. He guided the Bulldogs to a school-record 178 wins on the gridiron. Neal, who stepped down from the dual posts at Camden High last December after 19 years on the job, succeeded Ammons --- his former head coach at CHS --- for the start of the 1998 season and is second in the program’s history with 133 victories as head football coach led the Dogs to the 2001 AAA state title. Rimpf was hired as Neal’s replacement last month after serving as head football coach at Jack Britt High School in Fayetteville, N.C., for the past five seasons. A former standout offensive lineman at East Carolina University, Rimpf played four years with the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens.
