Lowes Sporting Goods "rewards" coaches based on how much tax payers money they spend with them over the course of the school year. I guess the coaches and Lowes got mad and are trying to "protect" their extra benefits. Most of the coaches buy from Lowes regardless of the price due to this payback scheme they have devised.

Tommy did give the runners shoes. He's a good guy, and people should stand up for him that know him. He was the hardest working coach I ever had! Tell me a coach that would run 5+ miles in the morning, then run with his guys after school for 6 miles? He pushed his runners to get the best grades and maintain a high GPA.--and we had the highest sports overall GPA--Then strived hard to help his runners get scholarships to college.

I concur with statement. Tommy is a good fella but did not have a clue how to be an atheltic director. He did take care of cross country and track. Central did not even have a band at the basketball regional tournament and the band director told me his self that Tommy said "no was" and not to ask again. He has to go.

You are wrong. He is cruel to the students. He stands in their face and curses them and belittles them trying to make them feel like they are nothing and will never be nothing. He has even hit students. He is the school bully with the power of of a teacher, he picks out his victim and convinces the principle, fellow teacher,janitors, secretary ,aides that that child is "trouble" and the whole school joins in the bullying. He manipulates the principle to use that child as a "whipping boy". He pulls the child out of class and manipulates the principle into threatening and berating the child with suspension, alternative school, and jail while he listens to the conversation on a intercom in a adjoining office to get satisfaction. He has never paid for anything out of his pocket when it comes to a kind or himself. He refunds himself from the funds the kids raise at concession or gate Money. He washes his clothes at the school and eats free from the lunch room or concession stand.

The band's primary purpose is not to play at basketball games. They have their own agenda and tournaments. Sounds like your stuck in the 70s.

Your crasy as h3ll. Even Pineville had a band at the 13th region tournament. Tommy was terrible as athletic director. He charged more than other schools. He should have manned up in the Brandom Elam scandal and then ran Wayne Mills off. He is a joke. Also furnishing shoes with a no bid

Everyone is talking about how he gave shoes to boys who had no shoes; sorry but it's called grooming!

It's what pedophiles do with their victims! Tommy is extremely careful when picking his victims! But one day someone will listen to them regardless if they have a drug problem as an adult!

If you really know Tommy ask him about the old saying the apple does not fall far from the tree! He will know what your talking about!

Tommy is a wonderful man! He does care for the students and tries to make sure they are eligible to further their education if they choose that option. Those that state he has other intentions are just plain crazy! Some people cannot see a truly good person for what they are. They have to make them into something else so they can feel better about themselves. The shoes that were given to the students were paid for by Tommy. He has given of his own money to the students without asking to be repaid or acknowledged for the act. Some of you will say that is what a pedophile does, but why can you not see that it is also what a truly good person does. I feel sorry for those of you that always choose to see evil in people that are trying to help the youth in Knox County. That is why so many of the youth are mixed up. They don't know who to believe. Tommy is a good person that we should all make sure is supported in the work he is doing for the students in Knox
County.
