Honored In 2014
John Alexander was a favorite coach and teacher at Jacksonville High School from 1978 through 1997. His 1984 Jacksonville Basketball team advanced to the state semi finals in Austin. In 1988 he was voted by Texas High School Coaches Association to coach the South All-Star team in the annual All Star game. John retired with 613 wins and after 34 years of teaching and coaching. He brought out the very best not only in his players, but also in every student that he so graciously took the time to get to know and encourage each day. "My greatest honor in coaching was being able to coach my two sons. Although I did not graduate from JHS, it is my home. I passed up several job offers because I wanted my children to graduate from JHS. Each one received a quality education that has enabled them to be a success in life, as have hundreds of others. I bleed Blue and Gold!"
