When the Cloudland Highlanders take the field in 2020, there will be a new head coach leading the team as per a press release from Mr. RIchard Church, Cloudland High School Principal, the interim tag was removed from the front of Scott Potter’s position with the team as Potter will now officially be head coach heading into the 2020 season.
Potter assumed the interim coach position as he inherited a team that was 1-4 at the time on October 1st, 2019. From that point, Potter led the Highlanders to a 6-6 finish (5-2 under Potter’s leadership).
The Highlanders reached the Region 1-A Championship while being named the Region 1-A Coach of the Year and co-Carter County Coach of the year.
Potter is a proud Cloudland alumnus playing for Coach Mike Lunsford from 1989 to 1993 where he was named All-Conference his junior and senior seasons.

Potter has been a mainstay on the CHS coaching staff at both the Jr. High and high school levels serving in football and basketball since 2006. He also serves as an Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at Cloudland High School.
“I couldn’t have had an easier choice than taking the interim tag off Scott Potter’s title,” said Church. “He is a committed Highlander that does all that is ever asked of him both on-campus and in the community.
“I am honored to have Scott Potter lead our football program into the future.”
