Welcome from our Athletic Director
On behalf of the 30 professionals that make up our athletic administration and coaching staff, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the families, friends, faculty, staff, administration, Board of Education, alumni, and the Hardin County community for their unwavering support of our student athletes.
Our athletic program consists of 18 sports with over 325 student athletes. These numerous choices provide the opportunity for our students to be exposed to valuable life lessons such as teamwork, self-discipline, courage, and character that can be used throughout the rest of their life. The experiences of athletic competition can teach us how to win with grace and handle defeat with dignity. The learning that takes place in our athletic programs, we believe, compliments our student athletes learning in the classroom and prepares them for life after Hardin County High School.
The conduct of our coaches, athletes, and spectators, in regard to sportsmanship and character expectations, are held to the highest level. We ask for your continued support of these standards as you interact with opposing teams, coaches, fans, and officials. Our community, student body, and booster clubs continue to play a pivotal role in providing unrelenting support, energy, and enthusiasm for our athletes and coaches. We wish to thank them for all that they do to create the most enjoyable experience for our student athletes. As a former student athlete, coach, and alumni of Hardin County High School I look forward to every athletic season and the contributions and sacrifices our student athletes make to continue our rich tradition of athletics at Hardin County High School. Once a Tiger, always a TIGER!
Wes Wilkerson, Director of Athletics
Gamedays in Hardin County are more than just another opportunity to show our school pride. It’s a day that brings our community together. It’s nights when our boys are grittin’ and grindin’ and striving for every extra inch on the field. It’s an afternoon when our Lady Tigers are fightin’ and clawin’ for another victory. The drumline of the Pride of Hardin County is beating drums of war, Tiger Motion and our cheerleaders are screaming, and the fans are going crazy. We love Hardin County. You will, too.
