Parkview grad Joe Sturdivant poses for a photo at Providence Christian.

Joey Sturdivant wore the orange, blue and white Parkview football uniform during its golden age. Now he is the man in charge.

Sturdivant was approved Thursday night by the Gwinnett County Public Schools Board of Education as the Panthers’ new head football coach, making the short move from neighboring Providence Christian, where he was the head coach last season. He replaces outgoing head coach Eric Godfree, also a former Parkview player.
