Mickey Fisher, the longest tenured boys basketball coach in Fort Campbell history, died of an apparant heart attack last night.
Fisher coached the Falcons from 1987-98, posting a record of 120-167. His 1989-90 team posted a 16-6 record. His teams won 10 or more games nine times in his 12 seasons as head coach.
Fisher's teams never advanced out of district play, having coached in one of the toughest districts in the state that included Christian County, Hopkinsville, and University Heights.
Fisher played basketball at Austin Peay State University from 1972-74 and was a teammate of James "Fly" Williams. Williams talked about Fisher on his blog, TheFly35.com
