Horne is from Noxubee County where he played high school ball. He played college football at East Mississippi Community College and later played football at Pikeville College.
Horne coached for several years in the Kemper County youth football association where he first met some of his current players. He coached on the varsity level at Kemper County High School from 2014 until 2019,
“I am looking forward to this opportunity,” Horne said. “I am very appreciative of the people who have helped me. I am looking forward to the season.”
