I am AHS parent and fan the girls Basketball coach is a joke. Too much talent on the team to have such a stupid coach. He reads plays from index cards, asked his dad "dad what should I do? Treats the girls like they are street kids when in fact non are street kids. How could AHS players/parents get rid of this NON-COACHING disaster?

Most of the girls will not be returning next year unless a new coach is hired. This so called coach is a joke, he gives up on the team in the middle of a game. He tries to teach biddy basketball to next level players. Constantly telling girls ugly comments, they don't want to play for him and he know it. His dad (asst. coach) is a bigger joke he coached in Delcambre for over 30 years and never won any titles.

They don't utilize the asst. coach and I believe he would do a better job than them idiots!

Ivy Landry wake up and get rid of them dummies before it explodes at one of the games, because its brewing and its going to happen soon.
I will be an embrassing situtation for AHS.

We place our kids in Biddy Basketball, they have played J H Williams Middle School ball and they all loved the coaches, even place them in AAU to help them become better players for high school level. Entered AHS and things got ugly coaching wise. Every player on the team is unhappy some are planning not to return, others looking into going to other schools.

The coach does not appreciate the skills that have been taught he He reads plays from index cards or constantly ask his dad what to do.

Dean Dronet talks to them with disrespect. To get respect you have to give respect. Has is dad as asst. coach which is a joke that man so old he looks like he gonna fall any second, the kids can relate to that old fart.

If this season continues the way its going it won't end well, the team need intervention from the adminstration. He had the nerve to put a key player off the team for virgually nothing.

DEAN DRONET GO BACK TO DELCAMBRE WE DON'T WANT YOU IN ABBEVILLE!

Dean Dronet has one vision of black kids and that is that they are street kids. One of the players is a straight A student, several is "A and B" students. All come from good family.

Sooooooooooooo
Dean Dronet got back to Delcambre we need someone who will repect our girls, and treat them as such. Not look at them as a project and give up on them in the middle of a battle. YOUR A JOKE No one likes you or your dad @ AHS

we got enough.

I am a big basketball fan and I love watching both the boys and girls play. I am also a parent and very involved with my children. Abbeville has some of the most talented girls playing basketball. They have all come up playing basketball together through biddy and have all excelled at the game. The majority of the team plays or have played AAU as well. They are some very respectful, hard-working young ladies. Not only do they work hard on the basketball court, but they also work hard in the classroom. Every other school in the parish gets a qualified coach to run their basketball program except Abbeville High. I do not understand why Abbeville High is treated that way. Not all children are "bad" that attend Abbeville High. We have a talented group of girls who deserve a coach who knows how to work with them and resect the fact that they are young ladies.

I don't recall anyone saying the coach was so terrible last year when he guided the team to the Sweet 16.

His dad was also an assistant coach last year.
He must not have had to ask his dad what to do at times last year.

It reads like the same person posted all those texts. Same thing written over and over. A disgruntled parent maybe?

I believe this is different people because I sat in the audience for one of the games. Several of the parents & players are disgruntled.
They have enough!

Oh! It was said especially at Semi-Finals when he refused the hotel stay that the booster club offered. Left Abbeville @ 5 am in the morning the day of the game, brought girls to mall & went to a friend house all this done the day of the Semi-Final game. Who does that? A great coach would definately want his player rested, therefore, he would have accepted hotel stay from AHS booster club, wanted their to girls to rest until check out and not went shopping @ the mall hours before an important game!

Also when he allowed is opponet to go up 12 point driving lay-up repeatly on the same player 6 times before replacing that player.

AHS could have went on to Finals if not for his lack of coaching ability and stupid decision making.

The only reason the team had to leave so early was because of the Lhsaa making the team go take pictures. As for the Booster club offering to pay for the team to stay, that surely was not the case. Believe me, I have sources and I know the truth, no B.S. As for the game and the pregame activities, I believe the coach was trying to let the girls have a great time, he took them to Mcneese and showed them around the campus. Let them have a shoot around at Burton coliseum. It's not every year a team goes to the semi finals. I believe like some of the earlier post were written by disgruntled parents. Get over it, he is a great coach, no one was complaing last year!!

Also, those girls look like they are very hard to coach. They are constantly fighting amongst themselves and acting out. I wouldn't want to have that job trying to control all those kids!! They may be good students, but they act out of control at times.. I've noticed some of the parents also being very negative. Is it not the job of the parents to be supportive of the team? It's easy to point out the negatives about a coach, how about some of the positive things that the coach does for those kids? Come on people, wake up!! Besides, their are like 5 or 6 girls that played last year that are not on the team this year that could help out... Again I think that man and his dad deserve more respect than what they are getting.

Want to see embarrassment? Come watch the coaching staff in Delcambre. We just lost our last good coach to Catholic High in New Iberia. It seems like we are the only school in the area that will keep a coach no matter what their record is!!!!

The last real coach they had at ahs that the girls really played for was Broussard and lebeouf. They need to find someone that will bring discipline back and respect to the program!

Here is my take on these girls coaches in vermilion parish. The top 3 coaches in my eyes come from north vermilion,erath and gueydan. These coaches have better engagement with their players and they know the game as it is played today and not the 70's. For instance abbeville high, strong,quick, and a lot of height. But the coaches want them to run a Princeton offense. It's not gonna work coach!!!! You have a run and gun team man, let them run and put pressure!!!! Get with the program!! It's 2014. I didn't have anything to do on Monday so I decided to go and watch the defending state 1a champs VC play notre dame. notre dame is one heck of a team especially shooting the 3. I watched VC coach put her team in a zone... Is that crazy or what? I watch ND coach, stand up and coach his team till the end. VC coach sat down the entire game and seemed like she couldn't wait for the game to end. Once again a team with talent but to slow pace of an offense and to mechanical. Players look like robots instead of basketball players. Finally AAU, the demon of all demons to these ancient basketball coaches. They are intimidated by AAU not realizing that the players they have that do play AAU can only help their programs. These girls play against the top talent in the nation. It's time for some of these coaches to wake up and smell the coffee and quit thinking that if a player has God given talent it's not street ball they just can ball. That's my take.
