Highway to be renamed in honor of late Coalfield coach

Knoxville, Tenn. (WVLT)-- We told you about this being a possibility a few weeks back. The renaming of a stretch of highway 62 in honor of of legendary Coalfield coach Garry Kreis, who passed away recently.

Before the vote, Senator Ken Yeager memorialized Kreis on the Senate floor saying; "...Not only dId he coach these men in football but mentored them to be good citizens leaves behind an indelible legacy for all of us a good example of compassion loyalty and diligence to all endeavors that he chose."

The vote of course passed and that section of highway 62 will be renamed in Coach Kreis' honor.
