Al Honor, coach of Lake Highland Prep’s 19-0 state championship team, was named the 2021 Naismith girls basketball high school coach of the year on Wednesday.
Honor, a West Orange alum, led the Highlanders to their fourth state title since 2015 with a team that is ranked No. 1 in the nation by MaxPreps.
“Thank you to (sponsor) Jersey Mike’s and the Atlanta Tipoff Club Naismith Award Selection Committee for noticing a coach being a shepherd behind a great group of young women,” Honor said in a Naismith news release.
Honor has compiled a record of 243-47 in 10 seasons at LHP, including state championships in 2015, 2016, 2020 and 2021.
