Denney joins Stanford in Court of Honor
A item in a Tuesday post mentioned former Casey County coach Jack Stanford’s induction into the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches’ Court of Honor on Friday at the Boys Sweet Sixteen. Stanford, who also coached at Breathitt County, will represent the 14th Region.
But we now know that the 12th Region’s representative in this year’s Court of Honor class is Roscoe Denney, the former Danville coach who is currently seated on the South Laurel bench for its game against Hazard.
Denney, now an assistant to Steve Wright at South Laurel, was the last coach to lead Danville to the state tournament when the Admirals won the regional title in 1990. He also led a Breathitt team to the state tourney during his tenure there, and he has also served as head coach at Garrard County — yes, he was the coach there for less than two weeks one summer, though folks in Lancaster would like to forget that — McCreary Central and Ballard Memorial.
Congratulations to Denney and Stanford for this honor.
