B’ford alum Lowery
to head GC boys
Former Bradford standout Justin Lowery has been hired as the new Gibson County boys’ basketball coach.
Lowery replaces former Union City assistant Michael Hart, who resigned the post to become the GC girls’ basketball coach after legendary mentor David Russell announced his retirement from the prep game.
Lowery, a 2003 graduate of Bradford, served as an assistant at GC in ’08.
During his prep career, he scored over 1,000 points and was named an All-District, All-Region, All-West Tennessee and All-State honorable mention player in both his junior and senior seasons.
