BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – When Justin Worden left Nature Coast Tech to be the head football coach at Astronaut in Titusville, a lot of people in the Tampa Bay area were shocked.
And for good reason.
Worden had just led the Sharks to two of the best seasons in school history in 2015 and 2016, including a pair of district championships and a trip to the Class 5A Region 2 final.
However, for Worden, it was a chance for him to come home to Astronaut to coach the War Eagles, where he graduated in 2004, when the school was a lock to make the playoffs every year.
Worden experienced a time of greatness at Astronaut and is now in pursue as the guy in charge.
“I didn’t play varsity football during my freshman year, but I was always around the program because my father coached here,” Worden said.
