Vicksburg Junior High boys basketball coach Jerdon Hardiman is entering his fourth season as head coach of the Gators.

Hardiman will lead the Gators onto the floor Thursday for their season opener playing the Warren Central Junior High Vikings. The Gators finished last season with a 18-1 record and played in the Little Six Championship game against Clinton where they had their only loss.

Hardiman is known for leading his teams to greatness, and the Gators have been successful ever since his arrival. Every year the roster changes for his young team, and he still manages to prepare them to be one of the best teams in the state.

This season will be Hardiman’s ninth year coaching and he plans to keep his winning streak going.

The games Thursday will be held at VJHS beginning at 5 p.m. with the girls team. The boys will play at 6 p.m.
