Brundidge, Edge retiring from TRM

TRM’s Eddie Brundidge and Marc Edge decided to make their leave from TRM to Houston Academy in Dothan.

Edge is currently the history teacher and head coach for the golf team and assists in the other sports.  He has been at TRM for 14 years. Edge started his career at Montevallo High School for two years 88-89, 89-90. Then went to Daleville High School where he was assistant football coach from 1990-1998 and later became head coach from 1998-2000. In 2000 Edge went to Robert. E Lee High School and was there until 2004, until he moved to Brewton and joined the TRM family in 2004.

Edge said, “What makes T.R. Miller special is the people in the community and it is tough to say goodbye.” He considered TRM as his home. He and his wife Becky Edge who is the guidance counselor and cheer coach at TRM wanted their kids to get an opportunity to go to TRM. Two of their four kids graduated from TRM. Katie Edge is 2010 graduate and Marc Edge Jr. is a 2012 graduate.

“The toughest thing is leaving the job I always wanted,” he said. His dream was to be able to be in Brewton at TRM and coach. He said there is a lot to be said to being in a good place, working with good people, teaching and coaching great kids. By the mid 90s I knew I wanted to a TRM football coach. The opportunity had presented itself to get here, as I have become friends with the staff.”

Edge said, “I love reading and teaching history and the new opportunity will be different, because he won’t be teaching history. “ Edge will be Houston Academy’s defensive coordinator and athletic director, where former TRM head coach Jamie Riggs is head coach.

“It’s been truly a blessing in the profession for 30 years,” Brundidge said.

“It’s an honor to do 17 out 29 years at TRM,” he said. “This is a great place, a great town and school. Brundidge said, “I have a lot of fun memories.”

Brundidge has done great things at TRM being successful as head track coach. He won seven state championships with the girls in nine out of ten years being either state champs or runner-up.

“I have been well pleased of the kids who have come out and hope they continue to keep the program running,” he said.

T.R. Miller is a great place, the No. 1 athletic program and it’s second to none.
