Floyd told WMSR Sports that he gives the credit to his success to the outstanding players and his assistant coaches. He also thanked the community, school system leaders, administration at the school and parents for their support. Floyd said he would like to say thank you to Jeff Breeden who named him an assistant coach when Breeden was the head coach of the program. Floyd became head coach in 2004 after serving 8 years under Breeden. He said that Jeff taught him so much and he considers him as one of his closest friends.
Coach Floyd always says “Remember the Moment”, Friday night will be a moment Terry W Floyd will never forget.
