A Coach's Son
Nathaniel Worrell
Posted Aug 24, 2008

The Pearl Pirates sought out a proven high school head coach to fill their vacancy this past off-season. Pearl fans were happy to learn that John Perry, one of the winningest coaches from the 4A ranks over the past few years, agreed to take the helm of the Pirates' ship.

Coach Perry brought along some of his assistant coaches from Kosciusko. In addition to having coaches he knew and trusted, one assistant coach brought along his son, Nathaniel Worrell.

Worrell, a proven high school offensive lineman, committed to Southern Miss back during the month of March.

"I still get a bunch of mail," said Nathaniel. "I get a lot of letters from a lot of schools, but no other offers yet. I am pretty solid with Southern Miss. I like the coaching staff there. I am real comfortable with them. I really like Coach Kap (Chris Kapilovic) a lot. That was really the main thing."

Before Nathaniel will earn his wings as a Golden Eagle, he will look to help Pearl High School rebuild their program back into the ranks of the contenders.

The relocation to Pearl is not the first move for Worrell and his family.

"This is the third place I went to school," said Worrell. "My daddy coached at Forest for about twenty years. We moved to Koscuisko for my seventh grade year and then we moved to Pearl this year. When Coach Perry got the job he offered my dad a job here."

Spending his senior season with new players and class mates, has not really fazed the talented offensive lineman.

"It's kind of weird moving, but you get used to it after a while," said Nathaniel. "Everybody here seems to like me. I know sometimes I get treated a little different because all of the coaches already know me. They put a lot on my shoulders. They expect me to help carry the offensive line."

Nathaniel plays right guard and some defensive tackle for Pearl, but he could end up outside at the offensive tackle position at the next level.
