Tremayne Donald was introduced as head coach for Paducah Tilghman High School baseball at a press conference held at PTHS on August 6.
Donald, a Paducah Tilghman alumnus, had an exceptional career as a three sport athlete (basketball, football, and baseball) in high school. In football, Donald was an honorable mention High School All American, and in baseball he was named to the Kentucky High School All Star Team. After graduation Donald was drafted into major league baseball by the St. Louis Cardinals.
Donald has over 21 years of experience as a baseball coach, and has coached high school baseball at Community Christian Academy and Ballard Memorial High School. He has served as Director of Operations for five years for Kentucky Prospects Baseball.
“It is an honor and privilege to stand before you today,” said Donald. “Through all my experiences in life I believe that God was preparing me for this very day when I would be named the head coach at the school my life has always centered around – Paducah Tilghman High School. To my players, let me say that I was that little boy who couldn’t wait to wear the Tilghman uniform. We are Paducah Tilghman, and you will come to understand what that means. We as a team will never take lightly the deep, rich tradition that is Paducah Tilghman.”
