Johnston to retire at season's end

Following a win that left his team undefeated in its conference and saw one of his players break a 35-year-old rushing record, Nansemond-Suffolk Academy football coach Lew Johnston announced he will be retiring when the season is over.
Johnston made the announcement during a team and parent meeting in the upper school gym after the Saints’ home victory over Hampton Roads Academy on Friday.

“It’s time, as I told them, to give the first fruits of my time and energy to my dear sweet wife, who’s been an absolutely wonderful coach’s wife for 41 years,” he said, recalling the meeting in an interview.
