E.L. "Moose" Godwin, a native of Selma, Alabama, was a graduate of A.G. Parrish High School, the University of Southern Mississippi, and Georgia State University.

Godwin would accept the head coaching position at Millry High School in 1960 and remain there for eight seasons before moving over to Flomaton for a single year. He seemed to find a home at Smiths Station where he coached from 1969 through the 1974 season.
