Father of Bryant Peace Jump to search Wayne Peace No. 15 Position: Quarterback Personal information Born: Wayne Lamar Peace, Jr. (born November 3, 1961) is an American former college and professional football quarterback and current high school football coach in Lakeland, Florida. He was born in Lakeland, Florida, and attended Lakeland High School, where he was an all-state football and basketball player. He was recruited by several top college programs and chose to accept a scholarship to play for coach Charley Pell at the University of Florida. Peace became the Gators' starting quarterback just five games into his freshman season of 1980 when a knee injury to starter Bob Hewko propelled the rookie into the lineup, and he performed well enough to keep the starting job for most of the next three and a half seasons. Over his career at Florida, Peace lead the Gators to a 28-12-1 record, four bowl games, and their first ever top-10 ranking in the final AP Poll (No. 6 in 1983). He set several individual records as well; his career completion percentage (61.6%) was a school record and his 7,206 passing yards were second in school history when he graduated. During his junior season in 1982, Peace set an NCAA record for completion percentage (70.7%) which was broken by Steve Young the following year. In one of a series of articles written for The Gainesville Sun in 2006, the Sun sportswriters ranked him as No. 81 all-time greatest Gator of the first 100 years of Florida football. He was later inducted into the University of Florida Athletic Hall of Fame as a "Gator Great." In the spring of 1984, Peace signed with the Tampa Bay Bandits of the United States Football League (USFL), who were coached by former Florida quarterback Steve Spurrier. Peace played in several games, sharing time under center with another Florida alumnus, John Reaves. After the league folded, Peace was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the first round of the 1984 NFL Supplemental Draft of USFL and CFL Players, the second USFL quarterback picked after Steve Young. However, he was waived during preseason camp in August 1985. Peace tried out for several other National Football League (NFL) teams over the next two seasons, signing briefly with the Miami Dolphins and playing in preseason games with the San Diego Chargers, but he did not make a regular season roster and decided to retire from football in late 1986. Peace graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor's degree in marketing in 1986. In February 1987, he founded a State Farm insurance agency in his hometown of Lakeland. In 2006, while continuing to run his insurance agency, Peace became the quarterbacks coach for the high school team at Lakeland Christian School. In January 2011, he was named head football coach at the school, and has led his team to 6-5 and 7-3 records in his first two seasons.

Josh Small has managed Spectra facilities in Augusta and Aiken for nearly 12 years. He said he's looking to bring major attractions to Albany, like WWE Live, which will come to town in August. Small said since he started on May 1, he's been in planning mode. He said he plans to have at least one major event at one of the facilities each quarter. Small said you can expect big-name concerts from all genres, family acts and national acts in the city. "We're just trying to kind of build on that and bring a couple more events that haven't been here in the past so we can slowly start to take the building to the next step. It's not going to happen overnight but we're putting all of that in place to get to that next step," explained Josh Small. Aside from WWE Live, Small said they are in negotiations for possibly three other events this year. Small also said they are looking to hire new positions for their marketing department and sales department to assist with those plans.
