Inez High 1929-1952
Coach Russell Williamson led the Inez High School basketball team to a KHSAA State Championship in 1941. Over a twelve year period of time, his teams amassed 8 regional titles. He was the premiere coach in Eastern Kentucky during the 1930s and 1940s. In 1940, four of the Inez players were placed on the All-State Tournament team. Coach Williamson believed that ‘dedication, discipline, and teamwork have enabled small schools from small towns in Kentucky to achieve great successes’.
