Montgomery Catholic has named Aubrey Blackwell as head football coach. Blackwell joins Catholic after two seasons as the assistant Coach and offensive coordinator at St. James.

He replaces Gregg Baker, who spent the last two years as the head football coach.

"We are extremely excited for Coach Blackwell and his family to join our community at Montgomery Catholic," said Catholic athletic director Daniel Veres. "We feel very fortunate to have a man of such high character, faith, and vision leading our student athletes. I look forward to seeing the impact coach Blackwell will be able to have on our athletes and overall community for many years to come."

"My family and I are honored and blessed to have this opportunity to lead this program," Blackwell said. "I am eager and ready to begin working the process of guiding and developing these young men, not just in football, but in life as well. I have been very impressed and encouraged by the leadership and the vision of the administration and their supporters. I am excited to have the challenge of making some facility improvements and improving on the atmosphere here that is God centered and goal driven."

Blackwell began his football coaching career at St. Paul’s Episcopal School in Mobile. His roles included passing game coordinator and co-offensive coordinator. He also has six years experience as a college assistant baseball coach; three years at Campbell University and three years at Montevallo.

"I am very thankful to St. James, (coach) Jimmy Perry, Melba Richardson, and Jerry Browning for allowing me to be a part of their school and to the players for all of their hard work and dedication. I will miss them greatly and I am very grateful for the relationships and friendships my family and I were able to have there."

Blackwell grew up in Montgomery and graduated from Robert E. Lee High School.

Coach Blackwell begins his new position at Catholic in mid-January.

"I will work diligently with my staff to develop a plan offensively and defensively that allows for the best success for our players," Blackwell said. "We will work extremely hard on building character, respect, discipline, and toughness on and off the field for our program, each other, and our opponents. Our training and preparation will be key in creating a foundation for success in the future. There will be a process and goal for every drill, lift, rep, and meeting that takes place. I am excited to begin meeting with the families and players to begin building our own ‘Family’ in football."
