Bay High Basketball
A message from the coach...

Another season has come to an end.  It has been a long, exciting and very successful year for the entire program.

All of the credit goes to the players for all of their hard work, dedication and effort throughout the year.  

But there are some others that without their efforts, our ability to continue to be successful each year would be severely handicapped.

First, a huge thanks goes out to who in my opinion, is the best coaching staff in the state - Coach Randy McCrory, Coach Dave Kenson and Coach Aaron Dunklin.  These men embody the spirit of Bay High Basketball and are as important to our programs success as anything else.  Thank you for all that you do for our kids, our program, and myself.

Another special person to our program that can’t go without recognition is Ms. Dorothy Davis.  Ms. Davis works behind the scenes in so many aspects that are vital to keeping our program running.  She handles all of the finances, makes lunches for every kid on every road trip, and countless other duties that are too many to mention.  The amazing thing about Ms. Dorothy is that she does all of this without even having a kid playing on the team.  She gives her time and efforts out of her love for the kids and Bay High Basketball.  Thank you so much Mama D for all that you do.  We love you.

If you ever need anything at all concerning whatever, please do not hesitate to call me - 228.216.7194.

It’s a great time to be a Tiger Hoops fan!!!

Thank you,

Coach Kelton Thompson
