RIVERDALE HIGH SCHOOL-

Saturday November third presented Whites Creek High School Head Coach Rodney English to an opportunity to display his squad.  Whites Creek hired Rodney English away from East Hamilton High School. 

Saturday Whites Creek played LEAD Academy, Independence, and Van Buren County.  The team looked very frazzled at guard and thin in the frontcourt.  There is talent, but the system is still far from understood by the returning players (Dylan Wade, Jermaine Donnell). 

Coach Changes

According to The Chattanoogan’s Larry Fleming in January 2018, Rodney English resigned from EHHS after an argument with a player and the player’s father.  

Whites Creek itself lost its head coach after a locker room confrontation between Head Coach Carlton Battle and a player’s father. It needs to be mentioned that Coach English resigned and Coach Battle was essentially indefinitely suspended, never to return.  It is ironic that Coach English took over for Coach Battle.
