As a crowd gathered for this year’s Joe Myers Sports Festival on Nov. 5 at Eastern High School, the school district took time to honor not only one of the most successful coaches in their high school’s history, but one of the top high school girls basketball coaches in Ohio.
Retired Eastern High School girls basketball coach Richard Kiser was awarded a plaque during the Myers Sports Fest, acknowledging his accomplishments during his year’s as the head coach of the varsity girls basketball program.
Kiser began his coaching career at Eastern in 1977 and retired in 2010, recording 601 wins while only suffering 167 losses to rank among the top 10 winningest coaches in Ohio.
Kiser was inducted into the Ohio High School Basketball Association Hall of Fame in 2012.
Even after his retirement, Kiser continues to support the Eastern basketball programs, working to help coordinate and oversee the Joe Myers 5K Benefit Run/Walk held on July 4 of each year in memory of the man who came to be known as the Eastern Lady Warriors’ No. 1 basketball fan, while also assisting with the annual Joe Myers Sports Festival.
