IMG 1145 g.alexander

Gregg Alexander begins his fourteenth year coaching in the Railer program and his eleventh as head sophomore coach.  Gregg is remembered by many as one of the finest players to ever wear a Railer uniform. His list of accomplishments rivals that of any athlete in the school’s history.  He is LCHS’s all-time leading scorer, our all-time leading free throw shooter, our all-time leader in steals, an IBCA First Team All-Stater, and a three-time first team Central State Eight All-Conference Selection.   He averaged 23.7 points a game his senior year and 18.8 for a career.  In ’98 he was a team leader that led the Railers to a 30-win season and an IHSA State Tournament appearance. Gregg excelled at the Divison I level as well.   He was a 4-year starter at Illinois State University and remains second on the Redbirds’ all-time 3-point shooting list.   Last year, Coach Gregg’s sophomores posted an impressive 22-1 record and won the Taylorville Sophomore Tournament. Gregg is a physical education teacher and the Physical Education Department Liaison here at LCHS.  He and his wife Nicole are proud parents of two sons: 4-year-old Eli and 2-year-old Nash.
