Blake Satterfield Named Trousdale County Head Football Coach
Trousdale County Director of Schools, Dr. Clint Satterfield, announced to the team on Monday, February 11 that he has named Trousdale County Defensive Coordinator, Blake Satterfield, as the new Head Football Coach for the Yellow Jackets. Coach Satterfield’s defense held opponents to an average of 10.4 points per game and forced 28 turnovers for the Jackets that went 11-4 in
2018 and reached the State Championship game before losing to Trenton Peabody.
Blake played for his father, Hall of Fame coach Clint Satterfield, and was three-year starter for
the Jackets who started as both a receiver and a defensive back on the 2005 State Championship team. As a senior, he rushed for 258 yards in his final playoff game in 2006. Blake was a four-
year letterman at the University of the South where he played both offense and defense between 2007 and 2010 and graduated with a Biology degree in 2011.
“We heard a lot in the community about the need to hire someone local who would provide stability and longevity to the program. “Blake has done a great job both coaching and teaching for us. I am positive that he will do equally as well in his new assignment,” stated Clint Satterfield. “I take pride in knowing that we have hired a young man who throughout his life has been immersed in the traditions of Yellow Jacket football. Blake knows our players and he has witnessed them evolve as both students and athletes over the past years,” said Principal, Teresa Dickerson.
“Trousdale County has always had a rich football tradition and an amazing fan base. I am very fortunate to be able to lead our program, which is full of great young men. As the head coach,
my goals are to get back to some traditions that have been lost over the years including: accountability, team identity, work ethic, skill development, toughness, and surrounding our
student-athletes with good coaching as well as getting back to being recognized as one of the elite programs in Tennessee football,” stated Blake Satterfield.
Coach Satterfield assumes duties immediately heading the Jacket’s off-season program while completing the 2019 softball season as Head Coach of the Lady Jackets. He plans to hold spring practice at the conclusion of the softball and baseball season. The Jackets open the 2019 season at Friendship Christian on August 23.
