EPISODE #97 – The Lower Coaching Legacy


Jim Lower

Jim Lower, longtime coach of Northwest High School, enters The Time Machine this week and brings along two of his sons; Mike and Kevin Lower.  That’s right, following in their father’s footsteps, both now have coaching careers of their own!

Hear all about Jim’s early days as a high school player and playing basketball and baseball at Ashland College. We discuss his first coaching position at Gnadenhutten and all the stops until arriving at Northwest High School where he was blessed with the opportunity to coach all five of his sons.

Then, Kevin and Mike detail what is was like having their dad as a coach and discuss their transition to becoming coaches themselves, as Mike succeeded his dad at Northwest and Kevin heads up the program at Tuslaw High School.

With Jim’s career encompassing 39 seasons and 453 wins and Mike and Kevin just entering their coaching prime, I think it’s fair to say this basketball coaching dynasty has a few more wins left in the family tree!  Listen learn, and enjoy!
