    God only knows, however, I would bank on a son following his father. Potential for his son to enroll even if Rigdon doesn't get the head role. Taylor brought Rigdon onto his staff strategically for that purpose. The kid can play.

    Exactly what I meant by strides.

    I'd say that's a hard NO from coach Clark then.

    Taylor is back in Texas. Working camps alongside a highly successful local high school coach. He's well connected there.

    Another candidate could be that St Pat alumni that's on Mason countys staff. I can't think of his name. Been coaching MaCo freshman. He'll never get the head gig there so not sure why he wouldn't venture into a head role and then move on with the strides he's made on the hill.

    Lamont Taylor would be a strategic hire if he'd apply. Can't leave out Tony Moore either. He's certainly put in the work there over the years and they've passed him over.

    Derrick Robinson Bourbon Graduate and WKU alumni would be a solid person to go after. He would be a strategic hire and would most certainly put in some roots and attract players/new Students.

    This is a unique role. They have some talent. They are not deep but they have s middle school group the has tremendous upside comparable to some of the best teams that St Pat has ever had. They are in a position to put a premium candidate at the helm that could make wonderful strides if their AD and admin will get ambitious.
    If the younger Rigdon can shoot anything like his father, then he'll be a heck of a player.

    My understanding is that his son could be 10x the player in all facets.

    So who is this Aaron Rigdon? I have followed 10th Region basketball for about 20 years and have never heard of him.

    I think he played at St Pat around 92-95 just an estimate on the timeframe.

    Just a shade before your time, Camelman. Aaron could flat out shoot it.

    I believe that's correct.

    Thanks. While I have not heard of him, I have heard of Jay Gast (1981). Someone told me he was the last D-1 player from St. Patrick.

    Pretty sure Rigdon was put in St. Pat athletics hall of fame in the past couple years.

    Pretty sure you are correct. One of St. Patrick's all-time leading scorers.

    His sister has been a BenGal cheerleader for several years.

    How tall is Aaron and, more importantly to this discussion, his son. Know the sister is barely 5' tall, if that.

    20 years would put you at 1997. He graduated in '94 or '95

    Competed against Cory Dumphord at Paris and that era. He was on the St Pat team that beat that Paris team in the All A.

    Strong player.

    Rigdon is about 6'0" I'd say. His sons Mother is tall. Strong lineage of athletics on both sides of the maternal and paternal families.
