CCHS trio signs to play college golf

The golf program at Chilton County High School is a tight knit family that was never more evident than Friday, Jan. 20, when a trio of seniors signed to play college golf at the same school.

Nash Cox, Cole Headley and Bailey Price all signed a golf scholarship to attend Marion Military Institute during a ceremony in front of friends and family in the CCHS cafeteria.

The group has been playing golf together since seventh grade and will continue as teammates a little while longer.

“We’re leaving as a team and going in as a team,” Cox said. “It helps your confidence to know that you have someone to rely on.”

The signings give Chilton County High School six golfers over the past two years that have been given scholarships to play at the next level.

“A lot of the community’s help and effort has made that possible,” CCHS head coach Ryan Price said. “I can never thank enough all of the businesses and individuals that gave their money and time.”

The day held extra meaning for Ryan Price, who held the role of coach and father, as he watched his son Bailey sign on the dotted line.

“There’s a lot of one-on-one time out their on the golf course,” Ryan Price said. “It’s been a special time between them all.”

The group will be the building blocks for the MMI golf program, which will begin next year.

“They work really hard in the classroom, and they are just really great guys in the community,” MMI head coach Drew MacBean said. “They are the type of guys that I want on my team.”

The CCHS golf program has made the trip to sub-state competition the past two years and was able to advance to the state championship in 2016.

Nash, Headley and Bailey Price are major reasons for the recent accomplishments and look to continue the expectations in their senior year.

“I couldn’t be more proud of them,” Ryan Price said. “They’ve matured enough to realize the guys that were seniors before them helped them to reach this goal, and now they want give back to the next guys coming up. That’s the true meaning of a leader.”
