Coach Keck Brings Perry Meridian Basketball to a New Level
Perry Meridian High School was honored to have Coach Brent Keck named Indiana Basketball Coaches Association Coach of the Year. Recognized for his enthusiastic drive to maintain a successful boys basketball team, since 2010, Coach Keck was one of 12 other coaches chosen in the state.
The IBCA, or the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association, states in their website that they are dedicated to giving the basketball coaches, players, and fans a voice in the changes that are taking place. Also, according to their website, “the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association originated in 1971 in a room at the Marriott Hotel in Indianapolis. Two Coaches from each of the five Indiana High School Athletic Association districts and Virgil Sweet attended. The IBCA’s goals were education and fellowship.”
After completing his fourth season at the Perry Township school, located in the southern part of Indianapolis, Keck made sure that he led the Falcons with two winning seasons for the first time in 12 years. According to the IndyStar, Keck, a 1987 Anderson Highland graduate, coached at Scottsburg, Frankton, South Adams and Cowan before coming to Perry Meridian. He owns a career record of 186-178.
At a recent state clinic honoring the coaches, Keck spoke on developing his very own feeder program. A program that has certainly taken this team from worst to first in just a few years. Whatever Coach Keck is doing is working well with the teammates, and the numbers are there to prove it.
The south Indianapolis school looks forward to another winning season, especially after Coach Keck has become a solid part of the district. Lawrence North’s Chris Giffin and Western Boone’s Rich Schelsky were also a few others recognized as Bob King Coaches of the Year by their peers in the IBCA, according to the recent article.
