Spotlight on Coaches with Sylvania’s Matt Putnam!

By Marla Jones, Sports Editor •

SYLVANIA, Ala. — The Southern Torch Coach of the Week is Matt Putnam, Head Coach of the Sylvania Rams Varsity Football Team.

Coach Putnam graduated from Sylvania High School in 1996.  He attended Snead State Community College where he played baseball.  Putnam transferred to Jacksonville State University where he played on the rugby team. Putnam graduated from Jacksonville with a major in Composite Science.  

Putnam has been married to his wife, Lindsay for fourteen years.  They have two children, Luke and Kaylee.

Before coming back home to Sylvania, Putnam held the head coaching position at Hazel Green for four seasons. He led the Trojans to back-to-back winning seasons in 2011 and 2012 and a playoff appearance.

Putnam stated that his favorite quote would have to be “Championships are not won overnight.  Everything is done with a purpose.  

Southern Torch would like to wish Coach Putnam and the Sylvania Rams the best of luck in their upcoming season.
