Seth Vining, the dean of Hall County coaches, winner of 730 games, 15 Lanierland championships, 11 region titles and four state championships, is stepping down as the coach of the Lakeview Academy boys at the end of the season.
Gainesville quarterback Deshaun Watson entered this season as one of the most highly touted juniors in the state.
