Deep Creek names former NSU DB as its new football coach

CHESAPEAKE, Virginia -- Former Norfolk State defensive back Andre Twine has had coaching success at Deep Creek Middle School and on the junior varsity level.

He hopes to bring that success to varsity as he has been named the new head football coach at Deep Creek High.

Twine, 30, replaced Calvin Copeland, who was 9-42 in five seasons, including 3-8 this past season. The Hornets lost 27-21 to Lake Taylor in the opening round of the 4A East Region playoffs, the program’s first postseason appearance since 2004.

Twine is excited about the opportunity because he knows what kind of talent is coming into Deep Creek.

When he was at Deep Creek Middle, the program hadn’t won a game in three seasons.

“We went to the championship game my fifth year,” he said, “and we were runner-up the two years before then.”
