Randy Hallock Obituary – Randy Hallock, the essence of Astronaut High football for right around twenty years, kicked the bucket Monday.
Hallock, who was 57, driven the War Eagles to a Class 3A state next in line finish in 2000, a year in the wake of managing the group to the state elimination rounds. In 19 years, his groups dominated 133 matches and five locale titles.
Under Hallock, Astronaut football qualified for the postseason multiple times, including each year from 1999 through 2007.
The alumni of Astronaut and UCF declared his retirement from instructing War Eagles football toward the finish of the 2016 season.
“He particularly set the norm here,” current War Eagles lead trainer Justin Worden said. “You take a gander at the Xs and Os and wins and misfortunes and his commitments inside the school and his relationship with the network, and that is the thing that you endeavor to be as a head football trainer.”
Previous Titusville High mentor and current Titusville civic chairman Dan Diesel recalled Hallock from viewing their kids play youth football, well before they met on the secondary school field.
“We had an extraordinary relationship, far beyond football,” Diesel said. “He called me on my birthday in March. He stated, ‘Upbeat birthday, and I need to thank you for the companionship as the years progressed.’ To me, he’s constantly been an extraordinary training companion and an incredible companion by and large.”
Merrill Worden, who trained with Hallock starting in the mid 1990s, recalled his partner as a players’ mentor.
“He would do anything for the children. He was essentially about the children,” Worden said. “He was a protective facilitator’s blessing as a position mentor, and as a lead trainer, he was awesome with his (colleague) mentors.”
