The Seminole ISD Board of Trustees voted to name the Seminole High School Gymnasium Court after Leland "Buck" Caffey.
Coach Caffey graduated in 1957 from Seminole High School and then returned to Seminole to coach in the 1960's. The reason he is such a legend in Seminole is that he won a state basketball championship as a player in 1955 and then was the head basketball coach of the 1979 state basketball championship team. It is quite an unprecedented feat to win a state championship in basketball as a player and as a coach at the same school in Texas.
Boys and Girls Athletic Directors, David Williams, and Tri Danley sat down with the Seminole legend, along with his wife Paula, in an exclusive interview on the newly named basketball court.
We will always appreciate the love, wisdom, and influence Coach Caffey has given to Seminole.
