    Billy Hicks is the winningest active coach.

    I really like Coach Britt at Mercer Co. He gives his players freedom to make plays and it looks like the kids love playing for him. I know I would have. He is constantly coaching and motivating. Mercer Co better make a commitment to him before a big school comes in and swoops him up. Some other top coaches in my opinion are Steve Wright ( SW ) Rodney Woods ( Wayne Co ) and the best coach I've ever had and still to this day haven't seen any better is Coach Greg Schepman, my middle school ( lol ) coach back at Boyle Co Middle School.

    I've got no argument with a lot of the names already mentioned here. But, I'll toss one out that I don't think gets anywhere near the credit for what he's done, especially considering where he's at (small, rural, public school)...and that's Gallatin County's Jon Jones.

    Rodney Woods of Wayne County definitely would be in my top 5. Can't believe I forgot him. What he gets out of what he has is nothing short of amazing.
    gold sunrise and Jumper_Dad like this.

    Dale Mabrey (PRP) is definitely someone that should be mentioned. His track record speaks for itself.

    He's another one I forgot. It's hard to narrow the list down to five, but I'd say that Hicks, Mabrey, Renner, Woods, and Breeden would be my top five if looking at their entire careers. Henley and Booher are a little younger, so the next parts of their careers would go a long way in determining where they'd rank.

    Some people may forget about Jeff Trame, great basketball coach at Scott. Was very knowledgable.

    Mike Szabo of Trinity has been putting togeher some very good teams the last 4-5 years, including a state championship. If he continues this trend, he'd have to be in the conversation. It's tough to get recognition with Ballard in your region.

    Billy Hicks from Scott County. Put the rest in a bucket and draw their names!

    I'd take Steve Adams from Boyle County over all of them.

    PP that is the craziest claim you've made yet. I still don't know how he won area coach of the year over Britt. Mercer had a better record, beat Boyle head to head, and advanced farther in the region.

    I am admittedly biased because Brian is one of my good friends but Adams isn't top 3 in his own region.

    I'll rank Britt, Woods, and Damon Kelley ahead of Adams.

    Steve Wright at Southwestern is a very good head coach, as well.

    That's not a claim. I never said he was the best. I said that's who I would take.

    Last year was the first time Brian beat Steve if I am not mistaken. It was also the first time Brian went to region. How many times has Steve gone since he took over? That's right. 3 out of 5 years. I'll take Steve everyday, all day.
