MILTON COACH COULD MAKE HISTORY
Say whatever you want about Milton basketball coach David Boyd, but the guy wins. He’s a Georgia high school living legend.
If prospect-loaded Milton High wins it all this week, it will be the fourth decade that Boyd has led teams to state championships in basketball. He won at Campbell (1982), Tucker (1996), and Berkmar (2000-2001). He would become the first basketball coach to capture titles at four different Georgia schools.
Boyd’s team, after a narrow win over Norcross in the semifinals, are the favorites against Newton on Thursday.
EVERYTHING’S BIGGER IN TEXAS — EVEN THE BLOWOUTS
Yates High (Houston) coach Greg Wise has a team that’s beaten one foe 170-35 this season and that’s not the only 100-plus point game his Lions have posted. That can’t happen in Georgia, where there’s a basketball “Mercy Rule.”
Is it a team’s fault when they’re just THAT good? Should the Yates coach face disciplinary action for… winning big? Read all about it HERE, then discuss it.
