Everyone knows Coach Burrow; the tall teacher with the beard. Some people only know him as a teacher, but he also coaches the varsity girls basketball team. During the last two seasons, he took the girls to the state championship twice, even though the outcome was not ideal. After this season, he was named Region 5A coach of the year. He has been getting a lot of exposure recently. At the state championship, he was interviewed by Greenville News. Winning Coach of the Year has contributed to more attention. Hopefully, he will bring the Lady Generals to another state championship attempt next year. 

Winning coach of the year is a great honor. Many coaches work hard to make their team better. The Greenville County Athletic Department noticed Burrow’s exceptional persistence and determination which led to his receiving this award. Reggie Choplin says, “He is a hard worker and hard work pays off. Wade Hampton is lucky to have him as a coach.” Reggie Choplin is the boys’ varsity head coach and has also won coach of the year. Coach Choplin brought his boys to upper state this year, after being eliminated last year in the first round of the playoffs. Both of these coaches deserve a lot of respect for keeping both of their teams up to par. They are the reasons why basketball at Wade Hampton is such a successful sport.
