Mr. Craig Faircloth
This will be my 13th year teaching. Previously I worked in Harnett County, Cumberland County, and have been in Johnston County the last three years.
2006-2007 - Western Harnett Middle School, Health and PE Teacher, Asst Football Coach, Asst Baseball Coach
2007-2015 - Douglas Byrd Middle School, Health and PE Teacher, Assistant Athletic Director, Head Football Coach, Head Wrestling Coach, Head Baseball Coach
I graduated in 2005 from East Carolina University with a Master's Degree in Sports Administration. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in 2003 in Physical Education.
As an undergraduate I worked in Recreational Services in the Intramural Department as a Sports Official in Flag Football, Basketball, and Softball. I was an All Campus Selection in each of those sports several times. I officiated extramural tournaments in Wilmington, Chapel Hill, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, and New Orleans. My biggest accolade was being selected as an All American Flag Football Official in 2003 where I was one of the top 20 collegiate flag football officials in the country. My "stripes" were retired in 2007 as I was selected for the ECU Recreational Services Wall of Fame.
As a Graduate Student, I was the Assistant Coordinator for Club Sports.
I was also active in my fraternity, Delta Chi, where I served multiple leadership positions including Intramural Chairman, Alumni Relations Officer, Associate Member Chairman, and Alumni Board of Trustees. I was also a founding member of the Cape Fear Delta Chi Alumni Chapter.
In addition to my teaching duties, I am also the Head Wrestling Coach and the Offensive Line Coach with the Football Team. During the last school year, I took the reins as the Head Softball Coach.
This will be my 4th year at SSS and I am excited about what the 2018-2019 school year has in store. This community and school has made great strides in the past three years and will continue to do so.
Currently I teach Physical Education I, and Weight Training.
