PULASKI — Phil Morgan has worn many hats during his time of more than four decades with the Pulaski school district.

He began his tenure in Pulaski as a teacher and a football coach in 1977.

In 2004 he decided to retire from coaching football and began his officiating career during the next season. He officiated local youth football games and saw it as another way of teaching kids the game.

Despite retiring in 2011, Morgan just couldn't stay away from the Pulaski community that he served for so long. He began volunteering time with the football program.

For more than a decade now, Morgan has been operating the scoreboard and running the clock for all of the football teams at the high school.

He says that being around the program for so long has allowed him to see a variety of changes to the high school football landscape and local community.

The school has seen changes ranging from new logos, uniforms, facilities, and more.

Morgan said he enjoys helping out the school for a variety of reasons, but there's one that always keeps him coming back.

"You've got the time and it's a way that you can give back," said Morgan.
