Coach Jamie Allen will lead the North Lamar Panthers basketball team in the fall.
Allen is no stranger to North Lamar. Of the 12 years Coach Allen has taught and coached, 10 have been at North Lamar. Through the years, he led the boys and girls golf teams and served as an assistant coach to both football and basketball.
“I’m very excited for this new chapter of North Lamar Basketball,” said Allen. “I have a lot of passion for coaching the game of basketball and for North Lamar. Taking over a program that I’ve played and coached in for the last 10 years is something that I take great pride in. I’m looking forward to the challenges and opportunities as well as working with a great group of kids that I’ve been with since they came to high school.”
Allen and his wife, Whitney, have three children: four-year old Kyler, two-year old Ellisyn and and Beckett who is four months old.
