Former Vicksburg Junior High assistant basketball coach DeAndre King is now coaching at Porter’s Chapel Academy where he is assisting with the girls basketball team.

King began coaching in 2015 at VJHS under head coach Julius Williams. They led the Gators to win the Little Six Championship that year.

King coached under VJHS head coach Jerdon Hardiman last year, finishing the season with a 18-1 record. He also helped the team reach the Little Six Championship, falling just short of victory to Clinton.

Now that King has made the move to PCA, he is coaching under Casey Fisher and alongside Chandler Ellis. With King’s assistance, the Lady Eagles have been gaining much success this season.

King has helped the Lady Eagles to a 4-2 record as they continue to grow and improve each week. The Eagles are set to play Deer Creek at home tomorrow at 6 p.m.
