Mr. Keith Connolly

 I’m Coach Connolly, my email is . This is year 3.5 for me here at Selma Middle. I have coached Volleyball here and am currently assistant Football coach, Head girls’ Basketball coach and Head boys’ track coach.

     I attended Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts where I majored in Physical Education. Then I attended North Carolina Central University where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Behavioral and Social Sciences. Most recently I attended East Carolina University where I received my NCTEACH certification.

     My favorite sport has always been Football, not necessarily to watch, but to play. I played at many levels from Pop-Warner to High School to D3 College to Semi-Professional where I started for two different Nationally ranked teams, The Middleboro Cobras (MA) and the Raleigh/Durham Wolverines (NC). I have also trained various Martial arts including Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai, and Brazillian jiu jitsu.

     My family and I live in Clayton NC. I have a son who is going into the 5th grade and a daughter who is a Senior. I have lived in NC for almost 25 years and have been married for 22 of those. My goal is to eventually get some acreage where my family and I can become more self-sufficient through farming, raising livestock, and using alternative energy sources like solar and wind.

     I love teaching here at Selma and am always impressed by the students who go here. My hope is to be able to share my mistakes with my students so they do not make the same ones I have made. I want to show them how they can help themselves live a life of Health and Wellness, so their lives can be long and productive.


Thank You!

Coach Connolly
