Hall has been the Eagles’ assistant coach for six years, with five being under Valentine. He had been serving as the physical education teacher at LCA.

“Although it is very tough to say goodbye to Coach Valentine, I am very excited to announce the promotion of Ted Hall, another great man of faith,” stated Terry Johnson, Director of Athletics. “Coach Hall is an excellent basketball coach who has been an integral part of our success on the court, who will continue to pour into our players both as a basketball coach and spiritually.”
