Eleven years ago Judd Boswell was named as the Arrows 19th head football coach and assistant athletic director. After approval by the Clinton School Board on Tuesday night May 9th Boswell has been named as the new Clinton High Athletic Director. The position was held by Brian Fortenberry who resigned to accept the position of Clinton High School principal.
Boswell lead Class 3 A Forest to a state championship in 2010 and a 15-0 record. He lead Clinton to their first and only Class 6A championship in 2016 with a 14-1 record. He also lead Arrows to the North Class 6A championship in 2020.
Boswell had a 71-22 record at Forest and has compiled an 80-51 record at Clinton with 15 playoff appearances.
Clinton’s athletic programs have produced some of the top programs in Class 6A in the state in recent year. Clinton won back to back MHSAA Class 6 A boys soccer championships in 2022 and 2023. Clinton girls soccer teams claimed the Class 6 A championship this past season.
Arrow boys basketball teams also won Class 6A boys titles in 2021 and 2022.
Arrow girls and boys track teams have claimed state titles every year over the past 10 years.
Both baseball and softball teams finished strong this spring in the playoffs.
Many long time Arrow supporters are excited about Boswell being chosen to head Clinton High Athletics including former Arrow football player, sportswriter and booster Nash Nunnery.
“As a CHS Alum and former football player , I am extremely pleased with the hiring of Coach Boswell as the new director of athletics. Judd has proven himself a winner on and off the field.”
“Over the years , we’ve been blessed with an excellent legacy of academics and athletics at Clinton High. I have no doubt he will take the Arrow’s athletics to even greater heights in this role,” said Nunnery.
