Chattanooga Christian School’s varsity football program celebrated its 14th year with the 2022-2023 season. Our young football team has attended the TSSAA DII-AA playoffs consecutively since 2018. It is not uncommon to see 4,000 to 5,000 spectators enjoying Friday night football at David Stanton Field. Football plays a unique role in the overall development of school spirit as well as the development of our BOLTUP culture among the young men participating. Football acts as a supplement to the overall emphasis placed on spiritual, academic, and athletic development at Chattanooga Christian School.
Daily, our team utilizes our state-of-the art weight training facility (Power House) for strength and conditioning and film study in our Charger Team Room. CCS offers 10 quality high school coaches (6 on campus) and 5 for our middle school program (4 on campus). Our high school program partners with our middle school team to give each athlete a high school mentor for the school year.
Coach Grant Reynolds is Chattanooga Christian School’s 5th head football coach. He previously led the East Hamilton Hurricanes to a TSSAA quarterfinal game defeating Dekalb County and Upperman High School. Before coaching at East Hamilton, Reynolds served as the head coach at Madison Academy where he compiled a 28-8 overall record bolstered by two region championships and a class 4A state runner-up finish in 2016. He also spent 11 years as head coach at Boyd Buchanan where he guided the Buccaneers to nine region titles, numerous playoff appearances (five quarterfinal appearances and three semifinals), and a state final in 2009.
With an overall record of 157-67, Coach Reynolds has a history of success, but more importantly, he values Christ-centered education and the impact he can have on athletes and their personal walk with Jesus Christ. His desire to establish a team culture that builds on and complements what our football staff has set in place will be key to growing our program.
Grant Reynolds has been married to his wife, Cindy, for 32 years, and together they have two children, Libby (25) and John David (20). The Reynolds family attends Clear Creek Church of Christ.
Coach Bubba Burr serves as our Defensive Coordinator joining Phil Massey in the 2022 season. He is a native of Memphis, where Burr attended the University of Memphis (then Memphis State University), where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration while playing NCAA DI baseball. While earning a master’s degree in teaching, also from University of Memphis, Burr served as a graduate assistant baseball coach.
Burr has always enjoyed coaching athletic teams and began that journey with high school athletes when he joined the Memphis University School (MUS) staff to teach and coach. During his previous stents at MUS (13 years as DC) he helped lead them to two state championships (04,05) and at Baylor (16 years as DC) he helped them to numerous state playoff games.
