Rallying Around The Coach

Andy Douglas wasn’t expecting a sendoff quite like this.

Set to coach his first game as the Quincy High School boys basketball team’s head coach, Douglas was treated Wednesday to a pep rally at Washington Elementary School, where he is the physical education instructor. The school staff, with help from the high school, organized the assembly and had the QHS pep band on hand to play the school fight song and wish Douglas well in his new endeavor.

Below are pictures Herald-Whig Photographer Steve Bohnstedt took and above is the video he shot at the event.

The Blue Devils face University City from St. Louis at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the 44th annual QHS Thanksgiving Tournament.
