Chesterfield— The Chesterfield High Golden Rams’ football team will be under new leadership with Michael Mains taking over the job.

Mains previously served as the Golden Rams’ offensive coordinator. He replaces Chris Arnoult, who moved on to Mid Carolina High School.

Mains also teaches math at Chesterfield High and has been coaching at the Pee Dee area school for five years, four as the offensive coordinator.

He also has coached at Irmo and at Stratford High.

“Our goals on the football field are to win games,” says Mains. “Our first goal is to win the first game of the year. We then have big games with Cheraw and Anson after that. We currently hold the trophy for both of those games and it’s our goal to keep them.

“It’s May so I’m sure there are six other teams in the region that say the same thing, but our next goal is to win the region and earn some potential home playoff games. A big goal is to make the playoffs and see how it shakes out from there.”

He added that he thinks highly of Chesterfield High School and the program that has been built there and that why he wanted to stay.

“I think Coach Arnoult, and the staff we have, have done a great job of laying the foundation of what we can become,” he explains. “He’s done a great job leading this program for the last four years and I hope that I can maintain it.”

Mains also expressed his appreciation to Principal Scott Radkin and Athletic Director Craig Hatcher for the opportunity.

 “I am humbled that they chose me to lead these young men,” he adds.
