History of Carnahan Boy's Basketball Program
The Carnahan basketball program was first started in 2006 led by Charlie Bean as the first ever boy's basketball coach. Charlie coached the boy's program to its first school victory in 2006. He led the Cougars from 2006- 2010. Soon after, in 2011 Jonathan Griffin took over the boy's program. In his first year, he upset the State caliber team of Maplewood RIchmond-Heights coached by Corey Fraizer, a former SLU basketball standout in the MSHSAA Class 3 District Quarterfinals. Jonathan coached the boy's for three years until he was promoted to Assistant principal in 2015. Currently, Carnahan is coached by Jonathan Griffin.
Carnahan Cougars were District Champions in 2018 under the direction of Jonathan Griffin. Led by standout Aaron Brookins, who has committed to William Woods University.
It is with great pleasure that the Carnahan Family introduce new Head Boy's varsity coach Brandon Wright. Former head coach Jonathan Griffin was appointed to principal therefore he had to find a coach to fill the vacancy. Brandon comes highly recommended from the basketball world stating his focused approach to simply working hard and smart. Additionally, the search was on for a jead Junior Varsity coach, his name is Robert Elam and he has dedicated his life to basketball and helping students out. The two of them together should make for an exciting team and basketball season.
We look forward to another successful basketball season.
