After college, he came back to his alma mater and has been coaching LHS girls basketball for over 20 years. "Seeing the growth and development of student athletes in both the classroom and on the court is what I enjoy about coaching. My ultimate goal is to help as many student athletes as possible go to college on a scholarship," he said. Doug's passion for basketball and helping students to succeed is remarkable. He has a true heart of a lion!
