No offense to any of the coaches mentioned, I just think that BMR deserves it.
    Bill Mike is the MAN. As hardcore a coach as there is in Kentucky. Some people seemed surprised of his great success this year, but..I've always said, BMR has ALWAYS been a football coach that coaches basketball!! HA...
    BMR when or if he ever steps down from coaching should and will be considered a legend. His success, and involvement in HS athletics is unique. What a competitor...
