Trigg County Middle School has named a new athletic director and a new football coach.

Curtis Higgins has been named the TCMS Athletic Director, replacing Tina Davis who resigned last spring.

Higgins will remain the head football coach in the high school and will also keep his job as TCHS assistant athletic director.

Meanwhile, Scott Morton has been named the new middle school football coach.

Morton, 36, will begin his fourth year at Trigg County as a P.E. teacher in the elementary and middle schools.

He replaces Bryan Jaggers, who left to take an assistant coaching position on new Hopkinsville High School head coach Dixie Jones’ staff.

“We’re pleased to find someone with Scott’s experience and talents right here on staff,” Higgins said.

Morton said he was contacted about the job when the position opened up three weeks ago.

Morton is an Owensboro native that played on Owensboro High School’s 1986 3A state championship team.

He coached for a season at Larue County before coming to Trigg County in 2002.

“I feel like I know how to motivate and encourage the kids, and I have an active interest in the game,” said Morton, who also serves as an assistant coach for the Midcat boys’ basketball teams.

Morton will also have the services of a pair of assistant coaches from last year’s team – Joc Ware and former Wildcat standout Edgar McGee – as well as newcomer Kevin Beucler.

Higgins said the Midcats will compete in the newly formed Southern Pennyrile Athletic Conference that includes Todd County Middle, Logan Middle, and all three Christian County middle schools – Hopkinsville, Christian County, and North Drive.

In addition to those teams on the schedule, Higgins said Trigg County will play Caldwell County and Paducah Middle.

Morton said the Midcats will begin practice Monday, July 25 at 4 p.m. at the football dressing room.

The Midcats will compete in a Jamboree August 13 at the Hopkinsville Stadium of Champions.
