David Boyd

Boyd’s six championship rings – Campbell (1982), Tucker (1996), Berkmar (2000, 2001) and Milton (2010, 2012) is a state record and ranks him among the elite in all-time Georgia High School basketball coaches. Boyd has taken teams to state championship games 10 different times and holds a 10-0 record in state semifinal games. Six of his teams were nationally ranked and several had full Nike sponsorships. He has been honored as the GHSA state coach of the year five times and was named national coach of the year by “Athletic Directors Magazine” in 2001.
Boyd has coached over a dozen athletes who went on to play in the NCAA and has coached several all-star teams, including the Nike Global Challenge championship team (USA Midwest).

Doug Lipscomb

Lipscomb arrived at Wheeler and built the Wildcat program into a national power. His teams averaged more than 20 wins per season, won six state championships and more than a dozen region titles. The Wildcats landed their first state title in 1994, then won three championships in a four-year span from 2002-05 before claiming their fifth crown in 2009 and sixth in 2015.
Lipscomb has also seen numerous players move on to college programs and six — Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Jaylen Brown, Jermareo Davidson, J.J. Hickson, Dequan Jones and Jaylen Brown — reach the NBA.
Lipscomb reached the 600-win milestone last December with the Wildcats’ 69-45 victory over Region 2AAAAAAA rival Newnan. The National High School Coaches Association selected Lipscomb as its 2012 National High School Boys Basketball Coach of the Year. His name is on the gym Wheeler played in before moving into a new 3,000-seat on-campus facility this past season.

Jesse McMillian 

Having spent his entire 17 year career at Norcross High School, McMillan was instrumental in building the program into a national power and now maintains its status as one of the premiere prep programs in the United States. During his ten year tenure at head coach, Coach McMillan has compiled a 253-59 record, won State Championships in Georgia’s highest classification in 2011 and 2013, and lead the 2017 and 2018 teams to State Runner-Up finishes. Also during this time, McMillan’s teams reached the state Final Four (2014) and the state Elite 8 (2009, 2010, 2015). As an assistant coach at Norcross (2001-2008), McMillan was part of three additional State Championships (2006, 2007, 2008). McMillan has seen over 65 former players go on to play collegiate athletics, with eleven playing professionally.

Sharman White

White had a legendary run with the Wolverines, winning seven state titles and posting a 264-47 record in a decade at Miller Grove. White also won two gold medals with USA Basketball (U16 and U17) and was named American Family Insurance ALL-USA Boys’ Basketball Coach of the Year in 2014 and National High School Association Coach of the Year in 2016. USA Basketball has already named White as a court coach for the USA Men’s U17 World Cup Team.
