MORGANTON, NC (WBTV) -

After 4 years, Mike Helms has resigned as head coach at Freedom.

During his tenure, the football program reached heights it has never reached.  Last season, the Patriots went 12-3 and made it to the 3A Western Regional Finals for the first time in school history.  12 wins is also the most ever in a single season for Freedom.

After a losing season in his first year, the Patriots went back to back seasons with 10 wins.  Helms is the first Freedom coach to lead his team to 3 straight 10 win seasons.

His final record at Freedom was 37-14.

Helms was also a head coach at Cherryville, East Burke, Northwest Cabarrus, and West Charlotte before he took the job at Freedom.  He has 112 career wins as a head coach.
