Doug’s Dougout: Lonnon’s Legacy
Joining us in the Dugout this week is Mt. Vernon Lady Rams Basketball Head Coach Jeff Lonnon. Lonnon received high honors recently when he was awarded 2021 IBCA Coach of the Year.
I asked Coach Lonnon what the award meant to him personally. “I’m not real big on personal accolades. In order to be successful you have to have good players that are coachable and will work hard.”
This past March, Lonnon also reached a milestone in the victory column with his 300th win. Lonnon said, “Regardless of how many games we win, or the success we have, I’ve just been blessed at Mt. Vernon. We are fortunate and I am fortunate to be in the position to put together a good team. I’m thankful for the kids that came out every year, it’s all about them.”
Lonnon will have his 13th year as Lady Rams Head Coach this coming season.
