Coach Thornton is starting his fourth year as the head coach at McCallie after leading the team to a TN DII-AAA State Championship in 2022. Thornton graduated from McCallie in 2002, having played both football and lacrosse, and went on to play lacrosse at Hampden-Sydney College where he earned DIII Academic All-American and graduated in 2006 with a double major in English and Philosophy.
