Jemison High Basketball Coach Jack Doss Selected ALL-USA Boys Basketball Coach of the Year
USA Today has selected Jemison Basketball Coach Jack Doss, as their ALL-USA Boys Basketball Coach of the Year.

He has previous state championships at Johnson, Butler, and Hayes High School in Birmingham, with an all-time record of 812-329.
