Michael Thompson won his first state title at McEachern High School last season en route to earning USA Today National Boys Coach of the Year, MaxPreps National Boys Coach of the Year, and Atlanta Tipoff Club Cremins Award honors. It was a pinnacle of sorts after having a such a strong and respected coaching career spanning over 10 years at McEachern High School in Powder Springs, GA. The only thing missing was a state title, and the Indians checked that box with one of the best runs in the country when it comes to high school basketball (or any sport for that matter). Finishing a perfect 32-0 last year, the Indians played a schedule that resembled that of a professional team when it came to the miles traveled and some of the turnaround times. Coach Thompson joined the GA Hoop Circle to talk about last year's gauntlet, Sharife Cooper, coaching lessons, his first flight with the squad, and more.
