My name is Brian Lackey. I have been part of this great Heat organization for seven years.
I played baseball, basketball, and soccer at Alexander Central High School and graduated in 2005. After ACHS, I went on to play two years at Wilkes Community College. From there I transferred to Appalachian State where I began my coaching career with the legendary Pete Hardee at Watauga High School. I have coached high school baseball for seven years at Watauga and Alexander Central. I also coached one year at Wilkes Community College with Andy Fox, who is a former Heat Coach, and is now the Head Coach at Saint Andrews University.
During my eight years of coaching I have been able to build relationships with coaches at every collegiate level. I have had the honor and privilege to assist many of my players in continuing on to play at the collegiate level, and some to the professional level.
Baseball is my passion and coaching this great game has given me an opportunity to help mold these young men into better student-athletes and better individuals. The relationships that I've been able to make with my players have been a blessing and it is exciting for me to be able to see them succeed. That's the reason I do this. Baseball has given me so much so I want try and give back what it's taught me to guys who share the same dreams as I had growing up!
