When Roscoe Johnson took over as head football coach at Atlee High School in 2007, he found the program to be, at best, moribund. The Raiders had won just four games in the last three seasons.
At the center of it all was Johnson, guiding his team, mentoring his players, trying to place Atlee into the elite category of programs in the Central Region. But there is more to Johnson than coaching football. Now, having moved into a senior teacher role last month at nearby Chickahominy Middle School, Johnson has decided the time is right to move on from Atlee football after nine seasons. “I wanted Atlee High School to have an ample amount of time to begin searching for their new head coach. I have the utmost respect for the athletes and the school. Those were deciding factors,� Johnson said in an interview with the Herald-Progress.

Coach Johnson gets one of many victory hugs.
“Everything I did was for the athletes, the school, and the community,� Johnson added. Not only did Johnson win 56 games, 40 of them in the last five seasons, but he found time to lobby for his players to be able not only to further their careers but secure a college education.
Names like Drew Ferguson, Josh Doggett, Will McCombs, Jay Hausler, Chad Jacob, Nick Clarke and Daniel Glymph dot rosters of college football teams across the Commonwealth, as Atlee student-athletes have benefited from the teaching, and advocacy, from Johnson and his staff to help them better their lives.
There is no doubt that Raider Nation will miss Johnson when Atlee football enters their next season of battles come next September.

ATLEE (9-11, Conference 11 Semifinalist): How will new head coach Roscoe Johnson, yes, that Roscoe Johnson, fare with the Raiders? Last year's team was young, competitive, but snake-bit. They return 14 significant contributors for 2015.
"Our biggest strength is the chemistry that this team possesses," Johnson told the Herald-Progress.
