Now on to local matters it was brought to my attention that TCHS Athletic Director Doug Gloyd is stepping down from his position at the high school. Now the question is who will replace him and will they school board hire someone to replace him with a athletics management background or continue a hiring pattern in the schools athletic department of hiring for budget instead of hiring a quality candidate. I know this school system and many Kentucky school systems are strapped in the pocket book but a school athletic program needs a leader who can take the program to that next level. From the few months I have been here to observe things I think Mr. Gloyd has done well with what he had to work with but with his departure it should be a time for the school system to look at the High Schools athletic programs over all and evaluate the plan and work to make it a better program for all when the next Athletic Director step in and takes the reins of a Trigg County Athletic program with a storied history in many sports and tries to reestablish the Wildcat dominance in the Fifth District. If one wants to see what the “model” Athletic Director should be look at the former Marshall County AD Steve Woodward. I have some ideas on what should be looked for in the next TCHS AD and I’ll post them on the new sports blog at tcrsportsguy.blogspot.com
