Houston County boys basketball coach resigned; Scott Whitaker to be replacement

Local Sports

After nearly two decades, Houston Academy boys basketball coach Ron Watson has resigned. 

Watson’s longtime assistant will take over the program. Before being hired as an assistant, Scott Whitaker was a head coach in Cottonwood, Ashford, and several other Wiregrass schools.  

Whitaker is ready to take on the leading role. 

“I have coached high school and middle school players, so I’ll be comfortable,” Whittaker said. 

Most of the boy’s team has graduated. Therefore, next year will have some new faces.
