Benjamin Lailson takes over R.B. Stall football program

January 12, 2022

R.B. Stall High School announced that Benjamin Lailson is the school’s new head football coach. Lailson recently served as the co-defensive coordinator at Philip Simmons High School in Berkeley County School District, where he helped the Iron Horses win their first-ever region title in 2021 and make the third round of the South Carolina High School League AAA playoffs.

Lailson will lead the Warriors for the start of spring practice; this will be his first head coaching job (football) at the varsity level. He does have 13 years of coaching football in the Lowcountry, and 19 years of experience overall.

Before a successful season at Philip Simmons, Lailson spent 10 years at Timberland High School (also in Berkeley County). He served as the defensive coordinator and defensive line coach for the Wolves and was part of two state championships (2011 and 2014) and eight region titles there.
