Shorecrest's Phil Hayford, who is stepping down as football coach after 33 seasons, will be on the sideline for his final game Friday  against Landmark Christian.

Plenty of alumni are expected to attend the game, including some who are flying in from out of state. At the end of the game, Hayford will take his final lap around the track, a tradition he has had for the seniors in the last home game of their careers.

Last month, Hayford found out the school was not renewing his contract. His 33 years at Shorecrest marks the longest tenure any Pinellas County coach has had at one school.
