1964 LHS Coach Returns as Bartlesville Assistant

KSCB News - December 12, 2011 1:53 pm

A Bartlesville assistant boys coach was excited when he learned the team would be traveling to Liberal. Cecil Epperley is no ordinary assistant. The former OSU basketball player played for Henry Iba at Oklahoma State. He coached seven years of high school ball and three years of college ball before getting into the banking industry in Bartlesville. He joined the basketball staff as an assistant coach and returned to Liberal this past weekend to a place he remembers being his first job out of college. Epperley coached LHS in 1963-64. The team went 2-17 under the rookie coach who remembers being homesick as a youngster fresh out of college. He says he also remembers how generous the people were to him in Liberal.
