Jerry Hoover

New Westville girls basketball coach Jerry Hoover addresses team members Thursday after his introduction. The 87-year-old Indiana hoops legend has coached at a number of schools, including Lake Central, Logansport, Ben Davis and Blackford, and runs the D-One Basketball Camps.

WESTVILLE – When Jerry Hoover walked into the main gym at Westville High School on Thursday afternoon for his introduction as the Blackhawks girls basketball coach, the group of players were all probably thinking the same thing.

“What do you see?,” Hoover said. “You see an old man.”
