This town does not have a ton of good lady ballers to begin with. You guys are naming friends of yours who play basketball. Not good basketball players.

There have been some excellant players too bad many don't remember. Emily Williams scored 72 points in one game in the fifties. Kathy ONeil from 75' class only female to ever sign with a major college .... Tennessee
that is. Darlene Clevenger Brooks, Trina Coggins, like mentioned earlier Lucy Dunn, Susan Laws And Jodie Ramsey were all very good players. Cosby also has had some really good players Lorna Barnes, Lounell Barnes, Judy Whaley Webb and Jill Breeden. The girls playing now could all take a few lessons from these ladies. There will be many good if not great players come from both of these schools but remember there were some pretty goods before you that deserve respect for what they did on the court. I'm just glad from a very early age with my Dad referree I got to see first hand that with the exception of Emily Williams Ball these ladies were great players that represented all of Cocke County very well.

It is easy, if they were that good, they would have signed division 1 and actually played at the college level. Everyone loves these local legends, but they can't even compete at the Walters State level.

One of the best guards or player as far as that goes was Valecia Buckner. CCHS class of 89. She was quick, hustled, played defense and oh yeah, could shoot the freakin' rock. She signed D1 with Univ of Alambama-Birmingham (UAB). I haven't seen one player from Cosby or Cocke County that could hold a candle to her, since she graduated....Not to mention she was valadictorian too! 4.0.

Dang your right! There has not been any player past or present that has HER talent!!!! She was unstopable and the girl never missed a shot. She deserves her own page!

No yall are all wrong about last years CCHS best ballers it was Jalese Pruitt she carried that team just all these political mofos didn't wanna see a true athlete just little white girls looking stupid and not truely knowin the fundamentals of the game Jalese takes after her daddy who was All State and can't no man or woman top that any person who touches the top of the back board is one heck of an athlete u people need to open your eyes and recognize true talent not a laughin bunch of sissys
