Raiders News · New Leadership for Raiders Football in 2020


Laurens District High School (LDHS) is saying goodbye to Chris Liner after six years of service. Liner is leaving his post as the Raider head football coach to lead the Greenwood High School football program. The head coaching job for the Raiders is expected to be a highly sought after position, especially after the Raiders ended their 2019 season as Region 1-AAAAA champions and a 9-2 record.

“We look forward to building on the success of the football program for our team, school, and community. The process of hiring the head coach for the Laurens Raiders’ football program will begin immediately,” said Tommy Spires, LDHS Athletic Director.

According to Ed Murray, Chief of Staff for Laurens County School District 55, “We are committed to the continued growth and development of the Raider football program and all of our athletic programs. We appreciate what Coach Liner has done for the program, but his departure creates an opportunity for someone else to step into that head coaching role and lead the program to even greater success.”
