Wasn't Nix at Hillcrest first?

Edit: it was apparently Whitehaven.

Tom Nix, an outstanding football player for the Tigers, is one of the most noted high school coaches in Memphis, played football for Ralph Hatley at Memphis in 1949 and 1950. Nix was a standout offensive and defensive lineman for Hatley’s’ high-scoring Tiger unit. In 1949 he was named the Player of the Game for perhaps Memphis’ most important of modern times. Nix’s defensive performance during the Kansas State victory earned him the honor. That contest is consider the first major win in school history and propelled the U of M into the major college level. He was also selected to the Tigers’ All-Time Team in 1958 which was picked by coaches Hatley, Muprhy, Zach Curlin and Cecil C. Humphreys. After graduation he became a coach at Whitehaven High and moved to CBHS in 1956. He remained the coach at CBHS until 1984 when he became the full-time athletic director for the Brothers. His career prep coaching record stands at 239-79-7. Nix is a member of the M Club Hall of Fame and the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame and is a recipient of the Billy J. Murphy Award.
