Abbeville also broke a few school records under coach Stewart, those 12 wins were the most ever at Abbeville and they Jackets broke the scoring record in a season, notching 545 points this year.
Then in the same county, Abbeville Christian head coach, Ashley Carlisle, was voted as the coach of the year at the AISA level.
The Generals too made a state title run before falling just short against Crenshaw Christian. Abbeville Christian recorded a 10 win season for just the fifth time in school history and reached their third state championship game under Carlisle.
