Nashville's Head Football Coach Tim Kuhn was named the 2015-16 SICA Coach of the Year for Class 2A. The Hornets' season came to an end in the Class 2A Semi-finals against Auburn. Nashville finished the season with a 9-4 record. It was just the third time in school history, that the Hornets advanced to the semi-finals.
Nashville started the year 5-0 before dropping games to Carterville, DuQuoin, and Columbia. The Hornets began postseason play with a thrilling last second win over the New Berlin Pretzels. The Hornets would go on to blow out Sangamon Valley and Athens in their next two playoff games, before falling to Auburn.
Coach Kuhn said “this honor is a combined result four groups of people. First off the last two senior classes, who were “ALL IN” in regards to the programs. Second, the coaches that helped implement the program. Third, great parent and administrative support of our program, and fourth, the great fans of NCHS and the community.” Kuhn just completed his fourth season as the Hornets football head coach.
