Former New Orleans Saints player Gregory Scales has been named head football coach at Carver High School.

Scales took over as head football coach for the Yellowjackets on March 3.   Scales is a longtime Carver staff member and has worked as an offensive coordinator for Carver’s Varsity and Junior Varsity football teams.

Scales has a long history of coaching football in Forsyth County.  He spent 17 years at Carver, one year at Forsyth Country Day, and two years at Winston-Salem Preparatory Academy.

As a student at East Forsyth, Scales played basketball, baseball, and foot-ball.  He was named All County and All State player in multiple sports.  Scales attended Wake Forest University on a full football scholarship.  Scales was a fifth round draft pick with the New Orleans Saints, where he played in the position of tight end from 1988 to 1992.

“We are happy to welcome Coach Scales to the long tradition of great coaches and a great football legacy,” said Principal Travis Taylor.  “Coach Scales has an impeccable reputation throughout the county as a leader, mentor, and coach of student-athletes.  Greg’s tremendous success and his strong character and integrity make him the right fit for Carver.”

New head football coach Scales says, “I am proud to be named as the head football coach for Carver and I look forward to working with the administration and community to build a quality program for everyone.”

Scales replaces Germane Crowell, who resigned from the head coach position earlier this year.
