OCHS Hires New Baseball Coach
OCHS is pleased to announce that Jody Hamilton has been hired as the Varsity Baseball Coach.
Jody is considered by many across the State to be one of the finest high school baseball coaches in Kentucky history. He has led his teams to 11 Region Championships, won 2 State Championships, and was named the National High School Athletic Coaches Association Coach of the Year in 2016.
His statement to the team told you what is most important about Jody and his coaching philosophy – he told them that he wants to make them ‘and’ players, not ‘but’ players. When someone is talking about one of his players, he wants them to say that he can hit, run, AND is a team player! He doesn’t want superlatives thrown around to be followed by a ‘but’.
Jody and his wife Denise have 2 children, Casey and Neena, two grandsons and a granddaughter on the way. Welcome Coach!
