FLORIDA ASSOCIATION OF BASKETBALL COACHES

The Voice of Florida Basketball

LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

I would like to extend a hearty Good Luck for the District Tournament and State Playoffs for all our members.  With all the changes I am anxious to hear from the membership on your thoughts about the new seeding and tournament format.

I would also like to announce that Ed Kershner will be enshrined in the NABC “Court of Honor” in Cleveland in July.  Ed was one of the founding coaches for the FABC.  He served as President and Executive Director of the FABC.  Ed has served on numerous national committees as well as State Chair for the FACA.  Ed is the all-time winningest boy’s coach in the State of Florida.  Winning State Championships and developing young men was a staple of Ed’s programs.  Ed still found the time to give back and constantly work for all coaches in the state of Florida.

Ed is currently battling kidney disease and is in need of a kidney transplant.  He started dialysis recently and is on the transplant list.  Please keep Ed in your thoughts and prayers.

Keep on Hooping,


President FABC

    Clay Kallam’s note to FHSAA regarding MaxPreps Computer Rankings

    My name is Clay Kallam and along with doing the MaxPreps’ national rankings for girls’ basketball, I started coaching high school basketball several decades ago. I’ve been an assistant coach on three California championship teams, the head coach of some pretty good teams and the head coach of some pretty bad ones — so I understand what the game looks like from several different levels.
