The Pressing Champions

Johnny Carter

This is the story of Johnny Carter’s career coaching Kennard High School basketball in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Carter would lead his newly-integrated team of a small East Texas town to three State Championships in his first four years as a coach.

This is a great tale of teamwork, determination and ultimately a love relationship between a coach and his team. Thrilling story! In many ways, this story feels like the movie Hoosiers
