Smiths Station's Britton steps down after 21 years

Posted: Updated:
SMITHS STATION, Ala. -

After 21 years and almost 500 wins, Clinton Britton has stepped down as Smiths Station High School head baseball coach.

Britton announced the move early Monday morning, telling the Opelika-Auburn News, "I just feel like it was time for me to step away from it."

The move comes after the Panthers were eliminated in the second round of the AHSAA 6A playoffs by rival Auburn High.

In his career, Britton won 496 games, and his teams made 15 playoff appearances. The Panthers won 20 games in a season 17 times under his guidance, good for eight area championships.

This season, Britton coached a team that eventually saw all eight seniors sign national letters of intent to play baseball in college.
