    No OT write up on the new coaches Rolesville or Franklinton last year if I recall. I believe N&O did cover.

    There has been no coverage of the change in Smithfield either.

    The school blocks the local media?

    Enloe's lack of recognition given to the hiring of their new head football coach is indicative of an indifferent administration.

    Right, When he left.

    The guy that left didn't get a press conference when he went to Enloe--he waited months for it to be official and barely got in a few days of spring practice. He got one when he left.

    Ken Blocker coached DB's at Enloe this past year. He was at Shaw University before that, coaching running backs. He has also coached high school football in Pittsburgh. He is a good man, a good coach, and the players like him.

    He will have almost all skill players returning, including a number of two year starters, but will have to replace the offensive line. I would guess that he will retain most, if not all, of the defensive staff and will have to replace the offensive staff who mostly moved over to Green Hope.

    After what happened to the last 3 coaches at Enloe (2 years, 1 year, 2 years) I don't think anyone of Coach King's caliber would punish themselves in an environment that does not care about Football. Going from ECU to Enloe would be an interesting storyline though.

    Usually when I want to find out information regarding a coach, I just google their name and add "football coach" into the search. Then, click "news" link on google. For example, google "Ken Blocker football coach" and when the results come up, click on the news link.

    Very little came up when I did it but I did see a twitter handle @coachkenblocker. Looks to be the same guy (maybe). His profile pic is of him dressed in a suit and tie in front a Shaw University backdrop. I think he maybe coached there in 2015 when he created the handle. That is best guess though.

    I am also interested in why such little coverage for this coach. It seems like everyone else who is new got a fair amount of attention. Ken Blocker is a mystery. I wonder why.

    Any info on Ken Blocker? I cant find much of anything on the internet and OT didn't give a background on Coach Blocker, I did see he was an assistant last season for Coach Green... Just curious what his background is and if hes local or from out of state Head coaching exp etc...
