Coach thanks school district

-A A +A

Recently, I was honored to represent Taylor County High School and the Kentucky High School Coaches Association as one of eight finalists for the National High School Baseball Coach of the Year Award. The event sponsored by the National High School Athletic Coaches Association honored coaches from across the country in 19 sport categories and was held in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

Although I didn't win the award, it was an honor to be named one of the eight finalists. I would like to thank Mr. Cook and the Taylor County Board of Education and Mr. Higdon and the administration at Taylor County High School for allowing me the opportunity to coach baseball at Taylor County High School. I would also like to thank the community for the outstanding youth leagues that we have. I especially want to thank my assistant coaches, former players and current players for their commitment and hard work.
