Jeff Lebo and his crew at Tennessee Tech received a commitment from Sneedville, Tenn., product Mike Matthews. The 6-6 Matthews selected Tech over Western Carolina and East Tennessee State.

"We got up there and Mike loved the players and he wanted to commit before he left," Larry Matthews, Mike's father told BCH. "We talked all the way home. He called Jeff Lebo when he got home and told him he wanted to commit."

Last year, Matthews averaged 15 points a contest.


Larry Matthews revived the Hargrave Military program in the early 90s before handing it over to Michael Byrnes, who passed the reigns to Scott Sheppard who bestowed the program to Kevin Keatts and finally Keatts handed it off to current coach Mike Preston.
