There will be a football meeting Thursday (2/28) in the LCC cafeteria at 4:30 to discuss the position of the head football coach. We would like all parents who have boys in the football program to come and voice your opinions as to who you think it should be. With what I'm being told it is between Kettler or Holcomb. We need to get a coach hired that can do the job and teach our boys a few things. Spread the word!!

Kettler now everybody know him and he has been on the coaching staff at LCC for awhile now.Why want they give Howard a chance are they scared that he will make them see that mistakes were made?Ask the players what they want from a coach. Don't the people that do the hiring like Terry Howard? If Holcomb don't want the job then consider Howard he would be the best possible hire.
just saying

well, looks like someone has a brain, i have said the same thing for years; terry howard would be great as a coach.hands down, look at his record in the grade school league. with that many wins/championships where could the school board go wrong! someone home grown and with that much knowledge how could they over look a hometown guy. i think the staff knows a winner in our town.

Holcomb was hired today by the council at LCC. Now we have to wait and see if the Board of Education will give Holcomb what he wants to become the new coach. He will not come cheap and I'm not sure the new board is willing to pay the big dollars like the old board did??????? Holcomb is a great coach but I'm afraid we will not be able to seal the deal and get him.

terry has no qualifications. No experience at this level.

I think Terry Howard has all the qualifications that is needed for this level.If people would give him a chance I think he would prove them wrong.I think that Holcomb will be good for LCC if he will stay.

5a football is not where you give someone on the job training as head coach. If he wants to coach so bad he needs to go out and get an assistants job somewhere, gather some experience, then come back and try again.

Training what are you talking about were did the other coaches get there training from? Please keep Howard away from them.

Terry Howard is a joke, He couldn't beat Jim Bob at NEON so they shut Neon's program down and gave Terry the players that would play for him. Terry always blamed someone for losing and it was never his fault. Terry is a cry baby!!!!

Oh, Larry Maggard is one of the most knowledgable people about football in this county and the best line coach I've every seen. Tony Sergent is a good football mind too. Larry just has other problems that he needs to find a answers for before he gets a head gig again.

Really. Terry Howard could coach ring around any coach if only they would give him the chance Howard didn't. Need to blame anyone because he hardly lost any gamesI don't know were you was you need to wake up.

Your ignorant if you can sit there on your high horse and say Terry Howard doesn't have the experience to coach high school I played for him for 4 years and we won 3 big sandy tournaments playing against the same boys we would be playing in high school. The only reason the school board wouldn't even give him an interview is politics, " "Ms Craft" lol wanted the big name for bringing in the big $ coaches she 0 for 2 we need a coach that gives a crap about us as players coach Howard would have made a good one. I guess we will see how this one turns out!!!

he has absolutely zero head coaching experience at the high school level and that is a fact so thats why i say it. If you stop and think of it, maybe just maybe thats why he wasnt considered. Also, there is a group of parents that want him to have nothing to do with their boys.

1. You need a coach with ties to Letcher Co, that way he is doing it for the love of LC and money, when they do it for money like every other coach cept Howard, they've left for bigger payrolls.

2. Parents shouldn't pick a coach, your kids are grown 16,17,18 they can make it without u holding hand.

3. I played under tony sergent, parents didn't butt in our practice or bussiness the team had meetings, we went 8-2 in the season and could have beaten any of the LCC teams they've had.

BTW, terry howard is good because his kids enjoy playing for him and when the kids love the coach they play hard for him, 90% of the time if you play that hard you'll win, but that isn't true in HS football where everyone plays hard trying to get a college ride.

Terry doesn't know HS football, he numbers his back wrong, QB is a 1 man everywhere in football except in Terry's Offense.

HS football isn't peewee, terry isn't ready for that level.

Terry COULD be a good high school coach, with some experience, but 5A football isn't where you wanna start, trust me. Terry would do good at a Jenkins, small school, weaker opponents.

Larry Maggard and Tony Sergent work in the central office therefore cannot be coach.
