Jeff Conaway enters his third season as head coach of the Saints. In his first two seasons as head coach,
Conaway has compiled a record of 16-8 with a state quarterfinal appearance in 2014 and a second round
appearance in 2015.
On June 17, 2014 Shiloh Christian High School named Jeff Conaway the 5th Head Coach in Saints Football
program history. Conaway, who had spent six years as Head Coach at his alma mater Greene County Tech,
represented all of the qualities Shiloh Christian was looking for: a leader of young men who can guide Shiloh's
student-athletes to be Champions spiritually, Champions academically, and Champions athletically.
Coach Conaway runs an exciting, Hurry-Up No Huddle offense cut stright from the mold of former Shiloh head
coaches Gus Malzahn, Chris Wood, and Josh Floyd. His extensive knowledge of the system and a proven
track record of leading a successful program makes him the perfect fit to lead the Saints.
Conaway came to Shiloh after leading the Greene County Tech football program to a level of success that they
had never had before. Under Conaway, the Eagles reached the following program milestones; First playoff win
in school history, Most wins in school history, Most points scored in a season, Most total yards offense in a
season, Most touchdowns in a season, Most receptions in a season, Most total yards in a single game, Most
passing yards in a single game. In Coach Conaway's six seasons at GCT, the Eagles enjoyed as many playoff
appearances as the program had seen in the previous 40 seasons combined. He was named the 2009 NE
Arkansas Coach of the Year.
Conaway was Shiloh Christian's offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach from 2004-2007, a period in
which the program produced a 44-10 record, 1 State Championship, 1 State Runner-Up, amd 3 Conference
Championships under former head coach Josh Floyd. The 2006 Saints were ranked 9th in the southwest
United States and number one overall in Arkansas. Coach Conaway was a vital part in the development of
former Shiloh Christian superstar wide receiver Crosby Tuck. Under Conaway's watch as OC/WR coach, Tuck
amassed 4,381 receiving yards and 52 touchdowns in his SC career.
Prior to his years at Shiloh Christian, Conaway served on the staffs of Arkadelphia High School and Ouachita
Baptist University as a graduate assistant.
A Message from Coach Jeff Conaway:
With the student-athlete in mind, my goal is to lead a program that will encourage young men to be disciplined
enough to commit themselves to excellence; which can be defined as the ability to rise above self,
circumstances, obstacles, change, and the crowd. In everything I do, I want to set an example by doing what
is right. In my teaching, I want to model integrity, dignity, and soundness of speech that cannot be
condemned. When students leave the program, it is my hope that they will have been exposed to and
participated in comprehensive lessons focusing on leadership skills such as work ethic, character, courage,
commitment, a positive attitude, perseverance, goal setting, communication, innovation, resilience, family, and
how to grow in their walk with Christ. We will continue to uphold the great tradition of winning championships at
Shiloh Christian. The future is bright....Go Saints!
Coach Conaway earned his undergraduate degree at Ouachita Baptist University, where he played football for
