Paul Watts retired from coaching basketball in 1985. Glen Drury, who recently retired from the Anderson County job, followed Watts at Western Anderson and has said many times that Watts was a big help when he started running his own program.

“Coach Watts was such a mentor of us young coaches,” Drury said last week. “He always wanted to prove that no matter the talent, you can still be successful. I admired watching his teams because they played hard and together. He was an ambassador for Kentucky high school basketball."
