Spotlight on Coaches — Sylvania’s Matt Putnam!

By Marla Jones, Reporter •

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

Putnam graduated from Sylvania High School in 1996, and then attended both Snead State Community College and Jacksonville State University where he played baseball and rugby, respectively.

He has been married to his wife, Lindsey, for thirteen years and they have two children: Luke and Kaylee.

Before returning home to Sylvania, Putnam was Head Coach at Hazel Green for four season. He led the Trojans to back-to-back winning seasons in 2011 and 2012. In 2016, he lead the Rams to a second round appearance in the playoffs.

Putnam says his favorite quote is, “Championships are not won overnight. Everything is done with a purpose.”
