Jim McDowell takes LHS boy's basketball job

By TOMMY BRYAN, sports editor
Jim McDowell added a heaping helping of responsibility to his plate earlier this week when he accepted the position as head boy’s basketball coach at Lebanon High. McDowell, a 2000 graduate of LHS where he played hoops for former coach Randall Hutto, takes over for Doug Keil who was fired just over a week ago after going 121-122 in eight years on the job.

He comes to Lebanon with seven years experience as an assistant basketball coach -- including a 2010-2011 campaign as the 9th grade coach at Wilson Central where he led the Wildcat frosh to a 16-0 record.

“It is my feeling that Jim will represent our school well and do a great job with our basketball program with his enthusiasm and knowledge of the game,” Principal Myra  Sloan said Thursday morning in a prepared statement. “Not only is Jim a solid coach but he is a quality teacher as well and that is a very important aspect in the total picture for the school. We welcome Jim back to his Alma Mater.”

As was reported in the May 4 edition of The Wilson Post, the Wilson County Board of Education voted without opposition to name the gridiron at the under-construction Lebanon High "Clifton Tribble Field".

Family and a few friends gathered Wednesday on site for a combination birthday celebration / field dedication. Sporting a Lebanon High jersey No. 76 -- the number he wore to glory for the Blue & White -- Tribble was presented a football and a hat by new LHS coach Troy Crane.

Tribble, a 1954 graduate of Lebanon High, was named First Team All-State in 1953 and was a three-time All Mid-State selection.
