Question and Answer Session with Coach John Webb

Q: Where were you born? A: Rockwood, TN

Q: When were you introduced to football and what were your first impressions? A: When I was 8 years old, and I loved it!

Q: Where else have you coached before you became head coach? A: I spent one year as an assistant at Harriman and at Cumberland County. I spent three years as assistant here at Rockwood before becoming head coach.

Q: What other coach influenced you the most? A: C.W. Pemberton Jr., There’s probably nobody I respected more than him in the world, other than my own father, he’s a legend around here. He was a great, hard-nosed football coach, but the way he influenced so many lives is phenomenal.

Q: What are the challenges coaching at Rockwood? A: Dealing with all the different types of backgrounds.

Q: Every team has a certain demeanor or trait that defines their team. What qualities do you want your players to come away with? A: I want them to be hardnosed and disciplined.

Q: What main things have you focused on to prepare for this season? A: We’re demanding hard work. We expect to work hard and be physical.

Q: What does a regular day at practice look like? A: We don’t like to make things long and drawn out. We like to make it an up-tempo style practice.

Q: Who are your Biggest Oppenents? A: I tell my players that we don’t need to look ahead to any games, only to focus on the upcoming game. That’s my mentality as well. The only game I’m focused on right now is our opener versus Oneida.

Q: What are some of your Most Memorable Moments at Rockwood High School? A: The 2009 state semi-final season and the 1997 double overtime win vs Kingston.

Q: Which rivalry is bigger Harriman or Kingston? A: Traditionally, Harriman is our biggest rival.

Q: Let’s go back to the 2009 Harriman vs Rockwood game in Harriman, you told the team you would walk home? How did this come about? Also, how far did you walk? A: It was a slip of the tongue half-time deal. It was a huge district game that we needed to win and it was good motivation. I walked right to the beginning of Rockwood city limits, where Fowlers Furniture is.

Q: Since you’ve became the head coach at Rockwood you’ve developed a level of success and consistency. What are your keys to having such a successful and consistent, winning football program? A: The key is we’ve had great assistants that have been here for a long time. Coaching staff makes consistency. We’re all on the same page and we know what to expect.

Q: What are your interests outside of football? A: Definitely my family. I play a little bit of golf as well.
