2018-19 Boys Basketball Coach of the Year!

Maury High School Boys Basketball Coach Brandon Plummer has been selected as the Virginia High School League’s Boys Basketball Coach of the Year for 2018-2019. Last year, Plummer lead the Commodores to win their first state title since 1927.

“Coach Plummer models the great values that we expect from all of our coaches and players. He is very deserving of this prestigious honor,”said Stephen Suttmiller, Senior Coordinator of Athletics for Norfolk Public Schools.

Plummer reflected on his recent honor and his experience as a coach of MHS, “It still feels like a dream at times knowing that I was able to take on such a recognizable basketball program at such a prestigious school, and achieve a remarkable accomplishment such as this. I am blessed to have earned this award, but I couldn’t have done it without my staff, team, administrators, and the entire Commodore family. It is because I am a well-known native of Norfolk growing up in the inner city, that this honor means so much to me. This award showcases to the youth in our communities that you can attain any and all desires as long as you are willing to work hard, accept the challenges, and possess the will to never give up.”

Plummer is now up for additional honors at the sectional and national levels with the National Federation of State High School Associations.
Good luck Coach Plummer!
