Greg Perry Named Hopkinsville Baseball Coach

A familiar face has been named the baseball coach at Hopkinsville High School. A media release from the Christian County Public School System said Greg Perry has been named the head baseball coach.  Perry served as an assistant coach with the Tigers from 2000 to 2008. 

Near the end of the 2008 season, Perry was named the interim coach for HHS when Scott Marks was suspended by then-Superintendent Bob Lovingood for using inappropriate language with the players.  The Tigers finished 5-3 under Perry.

The Tigers were 19-14 in Perry's only full season as head coach in 2009.  After the season, Perry was told by then-HHS principal Demetria Choice that he was three college hours short in his requirement to be a coach.  The school then named Randy Harrell as head coach, and the Tigers won the 2010 region title.

"I look forward to a great year of working with the team, and I thank the community for all of their support over the years," Perry said in the release.

Perry takes over for Jeff Gillespie, who was 32-32 in two seasons as Tiger head coach, but resigned earlier this month due to what he called "philosophical differences with the administration."
