BUFORD — The Buford High School varsity softball team will have a new head coach for their 2021 season after Tony Wolfe has decided to retire from his head coaching position. He has decided to focus solely on his role as the Buford High School Athletic Director.
Buford looks in-house for his successor promoting current associate coach, Trent Adams to be the new head coach for varsity softball. Adams has been coaching with the Buford softball team for the last 15 years. The school is expecting the change in leadership, which is effective immediately to be “seamless” as Adams thoroughly knows Buford softball and the community.
Wolfe has been the head coach of the Lady Wolves softball team since 2007. He was also the head coach of the baseball team serving in that capacity from 1997 to 2017. Wolfe has been a part of an impressive 12 state championship teams between the two teams. He will leave his head coaching position with the Lady Wolves with a final overall record of 429-78-2, 11 region championships and 10 state championships. In 2019, Wolfe was inducted into the Georgia Dugout Club Softball Hall of Fame solidifying his legacy on softball in the state of Georgia.
“Coach Wolfe, his wife, Kim, and his daughters, Whitney and Peyton, have served the Buford community well, and we are grateful for their contributions to the Wolves,” said Buford High School in an official statement released on Wednesday afternoon.
