Thank You Coach Jones & Welcome Coach Morton

I just wanted to take this time and thank Coach Harry Jones for his service to Broughton High School and the Baseball program.  After careful consideration Coach Jones has decided to step down as the Broughton Baseball Head Coach to pursue other interests.  Coach Jones has instilled excellence into the program both on and off the field, his presence will be missed.  The vacancy will be filled by JV Head Coach Jere Morton IV.

18814Coach Jere Morton IV has headed up the JV program for the last two years.  Coach Morton is a Raleigh Native who graduated from Cary HS in 2003 and NC State in 2008.  His wife Brooke and 2yr old daughter Malaney currently reside in Fuquay Varina.  Jere is a special education teacher at BHS and has a passion for helping students with needs.  Coach Morton “I want to honor my family name and be a positive reflection of where I come from.  As a coach at Broughton, I respect those that have coached before me, those who have played for the Purple and Gold, and therefore I want to make them all proud by making Broughton a winning program both on the field and in the community.  Last but not least, as a teacher at Broughton, I want be the best teacher I can be because of the excellence that is associated with the staff and faculty at BHS.”
