By DEUCE NIVEN

    Funeral services for Jack Holley, North Carolina’s most winning high school football coach, have been scheduled for 6 p.m. Friday, May 24, at Thell B. Overman Field, Legion Stadium, located on Teachey Road off of NC 41 in Wallace.
     Coach Holley died Monday at his home in Teachey after battling illness that had kept him in a Duke Medical Center bed for two months. He was 74.
    His funeral later this week will be a celebration, Price said, with those associated with the legendary coach encouraged to take part and to wear their respective school colors.
    “He was like my best friend,” Price said. “And he loved the people of Tabor City. We hope to see a lot of Red Devil red at the funeral.”
