BlueDevils News · SHS Basketball Court Named for Legendary Coach Lee Hill


In a small, private ceremony Friday night, Statesboro High School’s Basketball Court was named “Lee Hill Court.”  A committee of school and community members, led by Mr. Frank Hook and SHS Principal Dr. Ken LeCain, proposed the name to the Bulloch County Board of Education, who approved the honor in May.

Coach Hill, the winningest active high school basketball coach in the state of Georgia, will be returning as head coach of the Blue Devils for his 39th year.  In that time his team has won 794 games, appeared in 25 Region Championship games, won 14 Region Championships, advanced to the State Playoffs 29 times, appeared in the State Final Four five times, finished as State Runner-Up once, and finished as State Champion once.  Coach Hill will be publicly honored at a yet-to-be determined basketball game during the 2016-2017 school year.
