Editorial note: We're hitting the road to tell high school basketball stories throughout Kentucky, uncovering the gems of the gyms in all 16 regions. This is the 10th installment of veteran high school sports reporter Jason Brakes' tour of the commonwealth.
He was named the boys' basketball coach at WayneCounty High School in 1986 and immediately set the path for a program with just one regional championship (1943) in its history. “It’s not so much his way or the highway, that sort of thing,” said Allen Burnett, the one senior who made it through that first season with Woods and is now an assistant coach with the program.
He’s led the Cardinals to nine 12th Region championships and a runner-up finish in the 1989 state tournament, falling to Pleasure Ridge Park 75-73 in the final. As WayneCounty (18-12) prepares to face Danville (21-12) on Thursday in the first round of the 12th Region Tournament at Pulaski County, Woods is trying to win a regional title in a fifth decade (1980s, 1990s, 2000s and 2010s).
“I don’t know how much longer I’ll do it,” said the 67-year-old Woods, himself a second-team All-State pick as a senior in 1971 at Lone Jack in Bell County. “The first time I wake up and say in my mind that I don’t want to go to practice today is when I’ll know.
The locker room is museum-like, with hundreds of framed photos of players past and present. The Cardinals posted losing records in Woods’ first two seasons but blossomed during the 1988-89 campaign behind seniors Jimmy John Owens and Julius Green.
The Cardinals had a final chance to tie or take the lead but couldn’t convert. “I remember some guy yelling at me and screaming at me when the game was over from behind the bench that I should have taken a timeout,” Woods said.
Kevin Jones was a sophomore on the basketball team when Woods arrived in 1986 and now is the school’s athletic director. “I hope he stays forever because I don’t want to have to be a part of the next group that has to hire somebody who comes in there,” Jones said.
