Metcalfe County High School Names New Head Boys Basketball Coach
EDMONTON, Ky. - Brandon Brockman has been named the new head coach for boys’ basketball at Metcalfe County High School. Brockman comes to MCHS with 10 years’ experience as varsity assistant and JV coach at Gallatin County High School. He also served as assistant principal at Gallatin County Middle School.
Gallatin County is part of a strong 8th Region and the Wildcats had a deep run in post season play this year. After winning the 31st District Championship they lost in the semi-final game by only four points to the eventual 8th Region tournament champion Collins. Brockman thinks this experience will serve him well for the ultra-competitive 4th region. “I’m very excited for the opportunity to be the next head boys’ basketball coach at Metcalfe County. Effort and player development will be a main focus of the program. Our players will get the job done on the court and in the classroom. I expect my players to be role models for younger kids; we are going to have a basketball program that our school and community are proud of.”
MCHS principal Kelly Bell formed a working committee to assist in screening the applicants. “Our committee was just wonderful to work with,” Bell said. “They gave an enormous amount of time and effort to the process, but that just goes to show how serious they took the process,” she added. Committee member Mo Hensley added, “I have a renewed respect for those in leadership positions that have to make these decisions. We were really fortunate to have such a great pool of applicants and with that level of quality it was a difficult decision. I think I can speak for the committee however when I say we think Brandon is the right guy for the job.”
Brockman will inherit a team with lots of varsity experience. He indicated he looks forward to relocating to Metcalfe County this summer, getting to know the players and community, and most importantly, getting to work on the court.
