LURAY — In time for the spring season, the County of Page recently welcomed Andrew Good as Recreation Program Coordinator. The Page County native officially stepped into the role on Monday, Feb. 28.

Good’s addition to the County follows the official retirement of Tony Painter in January after 15 years as Page County Recreation Director. Through Good’s full-time role as Program Coordinator he will oversee many of the same responsibilities. The position is responsible for planning, organizing and supervising athletic events and community programs; recruiting and supervising coaches, staff and game officials; and directing athletic field, park and facility maintenance and repair.

“Andrew is a great fit for this position,” said Page County Administrator Amity Moler. “The love he has for his community and the excitement at the opportunity to serve as the Recreation Program Coordinator were obvious in his interview. I think he will serve Page County well, and we’re excited for spring soccer.”

Good, 29, is a 2011 graduate of Luray High School. In 2016, he earned a bachelor’s in exercise, sports and health education from Radford University. He formerly worked for Harrisonburg City Parks and Recreation as an athletic turf technician.

Good served as an agriculture teacher at Luray Middle School for three years, from 2018 to 2021. He additionally served as an assistant boys basketball coach for one year during his time at Luray Middle.

“I love the County,” said Good, referencing his new role in his hometown. “Everybody knows everybody and it’s a beautiful place to live and work. Growing up, I always enjoyed working on the farm, playing sports and going outside to all of our local parks.”

Good continued, noting that he hopes to help give local youth the same experiences he had while growing up in Luray playing baseball and football.

“It had a big impact,” said Good. “You gain valuable skills through sports, like communication and teamwork, then the friendships you gain along the way, plus the mentorship of coaches — that’s something I want to provide for kids.”
