Stewarts Creek High School has chosen its next boys basketball coach. Howard Pride has been tapped by Principal Dr. Clark Harrell.

Pride has over 20 years of experience at both the high school and collegiate levels and an overall 158-61 coaching record. He comes to SCHS as head coach from Mae Jemison High School in Huntsville, Alabama, where the Jemison Jaguars went 45-12 the last two years and are currently the fourth-ranked team in Alabama.

As a player, Pride was Alabama's Mr. Basketball, 6A Player of the Year, and among Alabama's Super 5 in 1993 while playing at Huntsville's Butler High School. Pride was a football and baseball star as well, turning down a chance to play professional baseball after being drafted by the Angels to pursue collegiate basketball. He continued his playing career at Vanderbilt University, where he was voted team captain as a senior in 1997 and was selected to the Southeastern Conference All-Academic Team.

Pride has coached at the high school and collegiate levels in Tennessee and Alabama, including time as an assistant coach at TSU and Belmont. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Human and Organizational Development from Vanderbilt and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Trevecca.

"After an extensive search, I could not be happier to welcome Coach Pride and his family to the Red Hawk community. He has shown himself to be a motivational leader with a proven record, and I know he will take our Red Hawks to new heights," said Dr. Clark Harrell, Principal.
