Lawrence County High School Athletic Director Travis Feltner spoke of Thompson’s selection and how he will positively shape the boys basketball program.
“We are extremely blessed and honored to welcome Coach Thompson to our family, school, and community to serve in the capacity of head basketball coach at Lawrence County High School.”
“This was not an easy process, nor one that was taken lightly as we had several highly qualified applicants. With that being said, we feel that Chandler was the best fit for our program to continue to build upon the solid foundation we have with our men’s basketball program.”
