Recently J.R. Holmes, the head basketball coach at Bloomington South High School, passed the legendary Jack Butcher as the winningest coach in Indiana boys basketball. This win total was 807 which when this article appears I am sure will be higher since Bloomington South is one of the state’s 4A favorites to reach the state finals.Butcher was a coach at Loogootee and has been retired for several years. Holmes began his coaching career at Cannelton High School in the early 70’s. Some people will argue that Holmes reached this level simply because he has coached that long. My theory is, you only get to coach this long if you keep winning. In Indiana, you win or you find something else to do.Congratulations to J.R. Holmes for the basketball program he has developed at Bloomington South High School.
