Ex-Brady coach leads cage team to semifinals

Former Brady High basketball coach, Tommy Davis, is in his 38th year in that profession and is still going strong. In fact, he took his Christoval Cougar basketball team to the Class 1A semifinals before losing to eventual state champion Evadale. The Cougars defeated Snook in the regional finals game, 61-60, in College Station before heading for the semifinals in Waco. Davis, along with his wife, Nancy, still own a home in Brady, and the two were in town this week during spring break. “The Evadale game was tight all the way, and we lost by four points, 70-66,” he said Tuesday afternoon. The Cougars finished the season with a 30-5 record. “They went to Austin and beat Stratford in the Division I championship game then whipped Goodrich to win the Class 1A Texas Cup,” Davis said. Davis coached the Bulldog cagers from 1981-88. He has been in Christoval since 1993. In addition to being the head basketball coach, he is the defensive coordinator in football and assists with the track program. The coach said he had another 30-5 season, that being when he coached at Paducah in the 1970s.
