That’s where I know the name from, Perry County. Didn’t he have a post player that went to Indiana?

Kirk Haston played pro for a few years. 

That 97 Perry county team was large. Haston was 6'8 and I remember 2 other guys about 6'6. They dominated that tournament.

Best Class A team ever in Tennessee and at least a Top 10 team of all time in any class in my MHO. No team has ever dominated the tournament like they did.

I would be very surprised to see Bruce coach again. Like so many "old school" coaches his style just isn't accepted at very many places. I know he wasn't successful at Sparta primarily because he was such a hard nosed coach and his regimented style wasn't popular with the kids. I'm wondering about his son? What grade? Is he a strong D1 prospect? Interested to keep up with him.

There was a few reasons he wasn’t successful in Sparta while the coach not just ‘style’ of coaching, but that ‘style’ won at a high % for a long time. 

His son is very talented player, just finished his sophomore year averaged close to 20 ppg and can really get off the floor at about 6’4-5. Has a chance to be very good.

If his son were willing, he could be a difference maker in district 8AAA. From what I've seen, he would be the best player in 8AAA the day he stepped foot in the gym. He is quite a player and Dad is quite a coach. I will never know what Moore County was thinking, but everybody has their reasons. This would be a coup for Tullahoma, but agree, Slatton isn't going to miss his son playing the next 2 years. It's gonna be really fun for Dad watching the kid play.
