GC Coach George Barber Recognized For New Record

Greenville College Men’s Basketball Coach George Barber was honored Saturday afternoon, prior to his team’s final regular season game, for establishing a school record for coaching wins in a career.

Barber’s teams have won 211 games in 17 seasons, one more than longtime Panthers coach John Strahl. Presenting Barber with a plaque was Mrs. John Strahl.

Also in attendance, representing the G.C. coaching group were Mrs. Jack Trager, Doug Faulkner, Kent Krober, Ish Smith, and Tom Morgan.

Barber is proud to be a part of Greenville College men’s basketball history. He said it’s an amazing thing to be a part of this community and know that there are six former coaches who watch you, but never put pressure on you.
