Urbana names new football coach

Sports

URBANA — The Urbana football team has its new head coach.  Ordell Walker was tabbed to take over the program Monday morning, replacing Nathan Watson who resigned in November after eight years on the job.

Walker comes to UHS from Bluefield College in Virginia where he’s been the head coach for the last four years.  After posting a 5-39 record there, he stepped away last fall.  Prior to his time at Bluefield, Walker was the head coach at Greenville College where he was very successful, going 22-9 in three seasons.

Urbana has struggled the last few years with only two winning seasons since 2002, the last time coming in 2012.
