Brook Hill Athletic Director and Head Boys Basketball Coach Wally Dawkins is stepping down as Boys Head Basketball Coach at Brook Hill after 6 seasons. Dawkins will remain as Athletic Director and Development Department Assistant.
Dawkins who has been a Head Coach for 33 years, has compiled 689 career wins. In his six years at Brook Hill, the Guard have won 125 games for an average of just over 20 wins per season while losing 60. Under Dawkins, the Brook Hill Boys Varsity advanced to the State Final Four in 2009, 2010, and 2014, and played in the Regional Championship game in 2012 & 2013. Combining his last two years at Chapel Hill, 19 seasons at Whitehouse, and his six at Brook Hill, Dawkins coached teams have had a winning record for 27 years in a row.
Dawkins will now focus on developing Brook Hill Middle School Basketball while working with 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Boys.
Brook Hill is very excited to announce at this time that Jacob Agnew, Brook Hill Varsity Assistant and JV Boys Basketball Coach for three seasons will replace Dawkins as the Brook Hill Head Boys Basketball Coach. Agnew, who teaches math at Brook Hill and who was recently named as the Upper School 2013-2014 “Teacher of the Year,” played collegiately at Lubbock Christian. Agnew has worked with Coach Dawkins with Varsity, JV, and Middle School teams during his tenure at Brook Hill.
“Jacob Agnew is a rising star as a teacher and coach” Dawkins says of his replacement. “He has a great relationship with the kids, is very smart about the game of basketball, and works hard every day to get the most out of our players. Jacob is the right guy for the job and I have all the confidence in the world that he will take our Boys Basketball program to even greater heights. We hope to have Jacob as a part of our Brook Hill family for many years to come.”
Agnew is already working, organizing summer activities for Brook Hill Boys Basketball including games, camps, and individual work.
