    I was thinking its a short-O in Ovie.

    Didn't he coach at Knox Central? Is there any relation between him and the Canady kid who played for EKU?

    I believe that to have a friend a man must first be one. That God put the firewood there, but that every man must gather and light it for himself. In being prepared physically, mentally and morally to fight when necessary for that which is right.

    It is O-vie (long O).
    Coach Canady was also the Head Coach at Evarts HS (his alma mater) the last couple years the school was open prior to consolidation. He then became the D.C. for Coach Larkey at Harlan County before accompanying Larkey to Perry Central.
    Coach Canady is a hard worker and intelligent fellow, but most of all he is very dedicated to his players and in turn they are dedicated to him.
    Best of Luck to him and PCC!
    Lastly, I do not think he is related to the Knox Central Canadys.

    Well I literally couldn't have been more wrong about every single part of that!

    He should have been named head ball coach months ago. He will do wonders at Perry Central.

    The kids work hard for him and have been since Larkey stepped down.. I’m glad he got it but I agree they should of made the hire way before it was said and done..
