GC tiger orange bgd 313x350 Mens basketball coach Chris Briggs among finalists for annual sportsman awardMen’s basketball coach Chris Briggs and former Tiger Vic Moses join Scott County football’s Jim McKee as finalists for the annual Kentucky Sportsman of the Year award.

This is the second year in a row that Scott County has been home to multiple finalists for the award given by the Lexington Herald-Leader since 1981.

Briggs, in just his second season at Georgetown College, led the Tigers (28-8) to the 2013 NAIA national championship, the school’s second. In doing so, he became the youngest coach ever to win the title and be named NAIA’s Coach of the Year.

Moses, the National Player of the Year in the NAIA, had double-doubles in all five tournament games to help the Tigers to a national title.

McKee led Scott County football to a 15-0 perfect season and a 6A state title, which was the first time a public school won the large-school title since 2000.

The only Georgetonian to win the award was Georgetown College football legend Eddie Eviston in 2001. Eviston is now offensive line coordinator for Tiger football.
