York High athletic director Ron Coursey stood at the podium at the front of the William Penn Senior High School cafeteria with a microphone in his hand, scouring the room filled with student-athletes.

If Coursey saw one of the students on the phone, talking to a teammate or simply not doing anything at all, he had no problem calling them out for everyone else to hear.

This is how mandatory study hall works for York High athletes. If you’re not doing homework or studying, you’re exposed. If you don’t have any work to do, then you better find some.

Former York Suburban boys’ basketball standout Ted Hinnenkamp will look to make his next mark on the professional scene.

More specifically, the Spanish professional scene.

Hinnenkamp signed a contract with the Spanish fourth-tier basketball team Fundación Baloncesto León last week and left to join the team earlier Wednesday evening. The signing was confirmed by Dickinson College head coach Alan Seretti. After graduating from Suburban, Hinnenkamp excelled at Dickinson.

In just more than seven months, the York County coaching landscape has experienced a seismic shift.

Four men who had firmly established themselves among the most recognizable figures in area high school athletics have moved on from the jobs that had defined their sports lives.

Eli Brooks is the most coveted recruit in York County boys’ basketball history.

Yes, that’s a pretty sweeping statement, but that’s the only conclusion you can reasonably draw after what has occurred over the past few weeks.

Garrett Bull always looked at his prior coaching jobs as valuable experiences that would hopefully put him in line to one day become a head varsity basketball coach at the high school level.

Since graduating from Juniata College in 2008, he spent the last seven years on the sidelines at various levels, with each stop preparing him for the day when he would finally be a head varsity coach.

When Susquehannock senior Victoria Acton heads to York College this fall, she’ll do so with a $20,000 head start, thanks to winning a Gretchen Wolf Swartz scholarship recently.

Acton’s Warriors were the girls’ team winner in the scholarship competition, with Hanover the boys’ winner.

PHOTOS: Northeastern vs York High boy's basketball

Several members of the Philadelphia 76ers’ management made it clear that not just any team can play in the Wells Fargo Center.

At least, that’s what they told York High athletic director Ronald Coursey and new boys’ basketball coach Clovis Gallon on Friday when the two drove to Philadelphia to finalize the Bearcats playing a game next season at the arena.

Clovis Gallon

Ronald Coursey didn’t have an easy task awaiting him as the new athletic director at York High School.

When he started back in February, there was no honeymoon period. No feeling-out process. He had to jump directly into the deep end, faced with two huge coaching vacancies that would’ve challenged any of the other 22 ADs in the York-Adams League.

Trojans prep to face Susquehannock

The York Suburban School District board members approved two major athletic hires for the high school during Monday night’s meeting.

First, the school board approved the hiring of Matt Marshall to take over as athletic director beginning June 13. He’ll take over for current athletic director Chris Adams, who will focus solely on his role as assistant principal. For the past four years, Adams acted as assistant principal and AD.
