      Lee County has named longtime assistant Brandon Brock the new head coach for the Lee County Trojan baseball team.

      Brock has been the assistant coach under former head coach Rob Williams for the past eight years and graduated from Lee County High School in 1994.

      "Nobody bleeds the red and white like Coach Brock. He is a student of the game" said Williams.

      Williams and Lee County administrators sorted through a bevy of candidates before deciding Brock was their hire.

      "I wanted to be head coach since I was 18 years old. I started with the 8-and-under teams and worked my way up to this point" said Brock.

      Coach Brock has worked with junior varsity and is prepared for the higher level of play a varsity team can provide.

      "Its a different level with faster and smarter players, but I'm ready for it" said Brock.
