Former Marlboro County High football standout player and assistant coach Kelvin Roller has been named the head football coach and athletic director at Georgetown High School.
Roller was the Bulldogs’ quarterback in the early 1990s, directing the team to the state semi-finals in 1991.
He began his coaching career at Coastal Carolina University as a student assistant. Roller joined the Marlboro County High staff as quarterback coach and offensive coordinator.
While at MCHS, Roller also coached the softball team, finishing as state runners-up in 2011.
In 2012, he moved to Dillon High as the football offensive coordinator and softball coach. While there, Roller transformed the Wildcat offense from a “three yards in a cloud of dust” running game to a versatile, spread attack.
The results have included four state championships.
Roller will replace Ken Cribb, who left for Johnsonville after a 7-6 campaign in 2017. He will be Georgetown’s third head coach in the last four seasons.
