It didn’t take much time for Cedar Creek School to find a new baseball coach after Ben Haddox stepped down from the role last week.
And as the school has done multiple times in recent years, it has brought in previously proven outside talent to fill the void.
Cedar Creek Head of School Andy Yepson announced the hiring of Trey Long to take over the Cougars’ baseball program.
Long will coordinate Cedar Creek’s entire baseball program through the middle and elementary grades and will also serve as an assistant football coach for the Cougars.
He certainly has the background to handle it all.
Long has spent 20 years as a coach, primarily at West Monroe High School, along with short stints at Good Hope Middle School and Farmerville High School, coaching baseball, football, soccer, and softball.
He also assisted in the founding of the West Monroe Sox travel baseball organization in 2012, and has been director of operations for the organization since 2013.
“Coach Long brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Cedar Creek, and I look forward to his working with our coaches and players to continue to move our baseball program forward,” Yepson said.
