English 9


I was born and raised in Anderson County.  I am a Bearcat through and through, and I graduated from ACHS in 1991.  I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Centre College in 1996.  I have a Masters of Education in Administration from the University of Louisville.

This is my 24th year at Anderson County High School.  

I am the head baseball coach, and this will be my 27th year as a head coach:  24 at Anderson.

I am married to Stephanie, a former 2nd-grade teacher at Saffell Elementary, and I have two beautiful daughters:  Anna Foley (19) and Charley Lynn Barnes (11).

I look forward to a wonderful 2021-2022 school year.
