Recommended Posts

The two month saga comes to a close. The former LexCath coach will take over in Ft. Thomas.

Good deal.  Answers my question on whether Highlands is still a top job or not.   It is.

Awesome!

Congrats Highlands, congrats Coach Sphire.

I don't see this as a home run hire by Highlands, I see this as a grand slam hire by Highlands.

IMO, this is a better hire than the person everyone thought "should" be the guy... The guy that I said wasn't coming.

I was told by a very close credible source for many years now......Bob would only come back to Kentucky to coach and for only 1 job......Highlands! There's your answer if the program is still relevant or not. Thank you Bob! How about the Highlands Admins for this hire. Yes, Matt Bertasso is the Man....Again!

Congratulations to Highlands and Coach Sphire. Looks like they landed on their feet! If he can do what we did at Lex Cath they should be in state finals in the next few years.
