(Lafayette High School, 1955-1979)
In the early part of his long career, Coach Sutherland was tagged as being the ‘Quickest Thinking Coach in America’. He is one of the very few to have taken three different teams to the KHSAA State Championships; Gallatin County in 1959, Harrison County in 1966, and Lafayette in 1979. Coach Sutherland led the Lafayette Generals to a KHSAA State Championship in 1979 while also receiving Coach of the Year honors. His wit and personality made him one of the most entertaining coaches in our state’s history.
