Head Coach 2014 - 2017

The Dragons have seemingly parked the school team bus at the BJCC every February and March during the last five seasons at the Final 48. The upcoming season will be the first without longtime coach Cedric Lane. Lane accepted the head coaching job along with the athletic director's role at Jackson-Olin earlier this year.
