Washington County High School head boys basketball coach Lyle Thompson takes the reins of a Tiger program this year that returns a lot of varsity experience and a lot of depth on a large team. Just two seniors graduated from last year’s squad and this year’s team has just one senior, so Thompson will be looking to a younger squad to step up their game.
