Hume named Daviess Co. boys' basketball coach | Sports & Recreation
Pat Hume has been named head boys’ basketball coach at Daviess County High School. The announcement was made earlier today.
Hume, who has served as a guidance counselor and girls’ basketball coach at DCHS since August 2002, takes over the program from Caleb Smith, who served as boys’ coach for four years before moving to Grayson County.
Hume says his priorities include maintaining high academic standards for student-athletes and developing leadership skills among players.
“I am really looking forward to working with these young men both on the off the court,” Hume said. “It is my goal to contribute to the development of these students as players and as citizens."
"It is a privilege to serve as coach of the DCHS Panthers and continue this program’s tradition of success, with a renewed commitment to extending our reputation beyond the district and regional levels all the way up to state.” He has outlined expectations for the upcoming season with a goal of 20-plus wins, earning the number-one district seed, winning district and regional championships, and competing at Rupp Arena for the state championship.
Matt Mason, DCHS Principal, echoed those thoughts as he expressed confidence that Hume and his team will succeed. “We look for Pat to build on the previous successes of our men’s basketball program and maintain the level of competitiveness established within our region and beyond,” Mason said.
Hume also said he plans to emphasize the basketball program’s developmental league structure for grades 3-6, strengthening the relationship between programs at College View and Daviess County middle schools.
