By Gary Lloyd
TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Board of Education last week approved a new varsity boys soccer coach.
Hewitt-Trussville High School’s new coach is Pete Dakis, who comes to Trussville from Oak Mountain High School, where he was the girls soccer coach.
Oak Mountain’s girls beat Mountain Brook 1-0 for the Class 6A state championship earlier this year. Oak Mountain finished with a 24-0-1 record. The girls won another state championship under Dakis in 2012. The girls were the state runner-up in 2013. At Oak Mountain, Dakis’ record was 75-6-3.
Dakis has also coached at Smyrna (Tenn.) High School, where he compiled a 94-30 record in six seasons as the girls soccer coach. His career record as a varsity soccer coach is 169-36-5.
The Hewitt-Trussville varsity boys soccer team lost in the second round of the Class 6A playoffs this spring. The team has been the Class 6A, Area 11 champion the past two years.
