Thacker, Woods receive NHSBCA John Wooden Legacy Award

The KABC would like to congratulate Rodney Woods (Wayne County) and Joey Thacker (Franklin County), who have been named Kentucky's inaugural recipients of the 2021 NHSBCA John Wooden Legacy Award.

The National High School Basketball Coaches Association has teamed with the Wooden family and the Paycom Wooden Legacy tournament to present an annual John Wooden Legacy Award to one boys and one girls coach in each state. The recognition seeks to honor scholastic basketball coaches around the country who are educators and have achieved excellence on the floor, in the classroom and in the community that further embody the characteristics and legacy of Coach John Wooden. The criteria for this award are rooted in the ideals of Education, Longevity, Character, Service and Excellence.

We are proud of the character and service to our state that Coach Woods and Coach Thacker exemplify and are thankful to have them as members and outstanding representatives of the KABC.
