Matt Napier got his first victory as a head coach last week when LaGrange beat Northside of Columbus. Napier’s brother, Billy Napier, also had a big coaching win when his team beat 23rd-ranked Iowa State 31-14 on Saturday. What team does Billy Napier coach? (Answer Tuesday)

Answer to Friday’s question: Charlie Greene is the coach who followed Wright Bazemore and preceded Nick Hyder at Valdosta in 1972-73. Greene won region titles at Stephens County, Thomas County Central and Westwood, but not Valdosta, where he was 17-3.
