GW Community In Mourning
The George Washington High School community has lost a legend. Steve Edwards, Senior died Saturday morning at 6:52am at the age of 81. The father of current GW Head Coach Steve Edwards, Jr- Steve Edwards, Sr. led GW to it's only state championship in football in 1981. Edwards is a member of the West Virginia Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame and the field at GWHS is named after him as well. Edwards won 99 games over his 15 year head coaching career. He also worked as an assistant coach at GW working alongside his son from 1996-2014. A candlelight memorial was originally scheduled for Monday night at GWHS but has since been switched to Tuesday evening at 6pm. The memorial for Steve Edwards, Sr will take place on the same field that bears his name.
