JEFFERSON CITY - Blair Thompson, the new boys' basketball coach for Jefferson City High School, has a familiar face.

Not only was Thompson's father a former coach, but Thompson was a 1998 Jefferson City graduate and a guard on the Jays Basketball Team.

"You gotta be able to build a program to the best of your ability and then go see how it compares throughout the state," Thompson said. "That part of it has always had me excited...and you know I treasure my time here as a player...lotta good memories...lotta good life lessons learned in that period."

Thompson previously coached at Sullivan High School and left with a 52-24 record.
