Hamilton County Honors Sloan


By WSIL Sports

MCLEANSBORO -- Jerry Sloan has done just about everything on the basketball court. Now the gym at his alma mater has his name.

Hamilton County honored its Fabulous Fox Saturday night by naming the gym "Jerry Sloan Gymnasium".

Sloan was on hand along with his family and many of his longtime friends.

Jerry says having the gym named for him is a great honor, and brings his life full circle.

Sloan said now that he's not coaching, he gets to watch more basketball on TV. He said he still gets the itch to coach, but that he's enjoying his family time--adding he even had a chance to go pheasant hunting in South Dakota.

Following the ceremony, the Foxes then went out and beat their rivals, Eldorado, 60-57.
