Libby tu serious. Maybe if you do some INCREDIBLE they might have a parade. This man won several state championships and coach basketball for 20 or more years. He has been a asset for Logan County. So quit whining and leave the man alone. Team Akers!

I agree, Libby are you big in town? Do anything good for the town you live in? Likely not. It's obvious you are a cold hearted and stupid person. Oh no ! You got out of the hospital? Everyone goes in and out of them! Gosh how old are you freaking ten? I doubt Libby is even your real name. Spare us. You are a complete moron and arrogant self centered punk . This man done good .

Willie is only famous because he and his Butt Buddy Jerry West used to date. What did Willie ever give back to his community other than an STD?

Libby's not all wrong. Yep Willie won games. But they slid players through school. Grades not important. Where are they now. Prison. Welfare. It's sad. Hatcher no better all about the win. He's no role model for anybody. Willie was good family guy. More than you can say for 90% of disgusting Logan.

Willie had teams that ran most teams off the floor. Some could hang around until the second half. The teams they played were usually dragging so bad in the second half, they couldn't hang. Put that in you pipe and smoke it! They didn't call them the running Wildcats for nothing.

Mr. Akers is a wonderful person inside and out. He was a basketball hero and an awesome coach. God has blessed this man with a wonderful family and a Christian life. Mr. Akers is loved by many friends and family.
