After three seasons, Loganville head football coach Brad Smith is leaving his alma mater to replace recently retired Gary Varner as the Allatoona Football  head coach in Cobb County.

Smith went 9-2 in 2022, which included a school record 8-0 start. The biggest of the wins was the season opener where Loganville beat rival Monroe Area 45-39 in four overtimes, in perhaps the greatest game in the longtime series between the two schools. The win included a trick play where the Red Devils completed a backwards pass to tight end Josh Ruder that set up the winning score on a 1-yard run.
