We are thrilled to announce Cedric Anderson as our new head coach of boys basketball. He has been coaching basketball for over 20 years, most recently as the head boys and girls basketball coach at Tipton Rosemark Academy.
In the past five years, Coach Anderson led his teams to two region
championships, three state final-fours, and one state runner-up. He has coached three Mr. Basketball finalists, and 60 of his athletes have gone on to play collegiate basketball.
Coach Anderson has been a deacon at Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church for 24 years, where he works with students and teaches classes.
He says, “I am truly blessed to be selected as Harding Academy’s Varsity Boys Coach. Harding is viewed by many as a staple of success in the total development of young people and has a tradition of excellence. I am looking forward to being a part of the continuation of dominance. Let’s go, Lions!”
Athletic Director Seth King says, “From our very first conversation with Coach Anderson, it was clear that he is a man of God who strives first and foremost to lead and disciple students. There is no doubt that he will lead a fiercely competitive basketball program. What excites me most is the impact that he’s going to make on the lives of our students.”
