The first day of high school football practice in Shelby County held a big suprise. Former University of Memphis defensive coordinator Joe Lee Dunn is now the head coach at Ridgeway High School. He made a name for him self at Ole Miss Arkansas and Mississippi State before before returning for a second tour of duty with Tigers in 2003. Dunn was let go a few games into last season but wanted to stay around this area because of his 3 daughters all under 16 years old. Dunn says he hopes to teach a couple math classes at Ridgeway as well but nothing has been finalized yet.
