Guy is a 1993 Muskegon Heights alumnus, who was starting point guard on the Tigers’ state-finals team that year. He spent 11 years working and coaching at his alma mater, nine of them as head coach. The 2019-20 school year marked his eighth as head coach and athletic director at Muskegon High School. In total, Guy has made nine trips to the final four as a player, assistant coach or head coach. He guided the Big Reds to a banner season in 2013-14, when they rolled to a Class A state championship and finished with a 28-0 record.  The 1992-93 season was a special one for Guy and Muskegon Heights. The Tigers were ranked No. 2 in the state and made it to the Class B championship game at The Palace of Auburn Hills, where they lost to Saginaw Buena Vista, 69-52. Guy, a 5-foot-10 spark plug, finished with six points and five assists in the game. Maurice Sain, who is a longtime assistant coach on Guy’s staff, led the Tigers with 14 points and 12 rebounds in the ’93 title game. Guy has built Muskegon into a perennial power. The Big Reds have a string of conference and district titles going, and who knows what the 20-2 team in 2019-20 could have done, as its season was cut short because of the COVID-19 shutdown. @HoopsBigReds kguy@mpsk12.net  --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/kevin-furtado/support

Jesse has been the Head Coach for Boys Basketball at Norcross High School for 11 years and has been a teacher and coach at Norcross for 19 years. He spent 12 years in the Norcross High School Language Arts Department before transitioning to Health & PE classes. During his time as head coach, Norcross won two state titles (2011, 2013) and finished state runner-up in 2017 and 2018. He has a winning mark of better than 80% in Georgia’s largest and toughest athletic classification. His Norcross teams participate in showcases and invitationals across the nation. Jesse grew up in a family of educators and knew early on that teaching and coaching was something he wanted to do. He spends about 335 days a year at Norcross working on the basketball program, and during the season many of those days are over fourteen hours long. Jesse is successful in part because he holds the players in his program to a high standard and evolves the program from being “coach lead” to “player lead”, empowering the team to make suggestions and approach during games, and hold each other accountable. Coach McMillan has been recognized in the Gwinnett Daily Post as showing “ a great ability to build chemistry [among the players]”. His fondest moments and most satisfying victories are Final Four and State Championship victories and memorable playoff wins versus Pebblebrook (2017), McEachern (2018), and Grayson (2019). Those games stand out because the team rose up against great odds and competed at the highest level. He’s also a bit superstitious; he makes sure to use his lucky pencil to fill out the scorebook at each game! Coach McMillan, his wife Elizabeth, and two children (Elyse and Mason) are long-time Norcross and Peachtree Corners residents. We thank them for their support and sacrifice to make the Norcross basketball program the best it can be! jesse_mcmillan@gwinnett.k12.ga.us  @NorcrossHoops Check out Practice Planner Live Landing Page : https://www.practiceplannerlive.com/backoffice?referralCode=lFybQ8WxF8 Free Trial Page : https://www.practiceplannerlive.com/backoffice/auth/trial?referralCode=lFybQ8WxF8 --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/kevin-furtado/support
