Last season Roswell continued the trend of players moving on to play at the collegiate level. Four seniors signed with different schools: Malik Abdulgader - Piedmont, Tariq Abdulgader - Piedmont, Eric Jone - Rose-Hulman, Trent Markwith - Millsaps. Senior Eric Jones was named to the All-Region team and Coach Phillips was selected as head coach for the South Team in the XL212 All-Star Game. In just the last four years, 12 Hornets have moved on to play collegiately.
In addition to teaching and coaching, Coach Phillips brought the Student Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) program to Roswell in 2011. SALT is an initiative of the IDEALS leadership organization in which coaches nominate student-athletes for SALT leadership training. Roswell High School is currently the only SALT participant in Fulton County.
Coach Phillips holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and History from Presbyterian College. He also holds a Masters of Education and a Specialist degree in Educational Leadership & Administration from the University of West Georgia.
Coach Phillips is married to the former Jennifer Lathem, a native of Canton, Georgia, who teaches high school mathematics. The couple has a nine year old daughter, Palmer, and a six year old son, Trey.
