Chester County Schools recently made their new hire for the Chester County High School Boys Basketball Head Coach position. The position was awarded to Tarius Johnson.
Johnson coached basketball at Station Camp High School for two years and coached girls and guys (Amateur Athletic Union) AAU for four years.
In high school, Johnson attended Liberty Tech under hall of fame coach Dexter Williams winning a state championship title. He then went to Three Rivers Community College and played under hall of fame Coach Gene Bess winning the conference. He continued playing at Eastern Kentucky University under Jeff Newburgh making an NCAA appearance and winning the Ohio Valley Conference.
Johnson said he hopes to bring energy to CCHS Boys Basetball and help the young men not only grow on the court but off-court as well.
“I planned on bringing good energy along with helping teach and mode these young men on and off the court and Having life time relationships with these guys,” Johnson said.
It’s been shown how Johnson has already started working hard to build a bond with the players and having the players build stronger bonds among themselves. That being said, he explained how he believes relationships are the most important aspect of basketball.
“It’s in my opinion the most important tool basketball is more than just a game – the journey, the battles, the moments we fall down and have to lift each other back up, comes from our brotherhood and again after these young men are finished playing ball at CC. There will still be our relationships that are forever – that support runs deep,” he said.
