Douglas Named New Bearcat Head Baseball Coach
In 2017, Coach Douglas was selected to coach the Crossroads Diamond Club 5A/6A All Star Team. The Vicksburg Post also recognized Coach Douglas as Coach of the Year in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.
Coach Douglas was selected from 26 applicants who applied for the vacancy after Coach Shane Rutledge resigned to accept an administrative position within the district.
“He is a class act and he will be welcomed in the Long Beach community. His experience and love for coaching kids will be appreciated by myself, our school administration and our school board. He has been given complete control of the Bearcat baseball program grades 7-12. It was my job to hire a coach, it is now his job to coach and I have zero interest in telling him how to do it,” said Smith.
