    PORTSMOUTH — In life, there are people who you believe are special by seeing their talent on a court, by hearing their command on the mic, or by reading their ability to write. However, it’s extremely rare to find a person who is as humble, if not more so, than the talent that he or she displays. As a coaching fixture in Scioto County from 1967 to the present day, Jack Branon has developed many players with his coaching talents on the various fields of play and has changed many lives with his perspective outside of the daily grind that sports provides. He’s not only done that, but has diversified his knowledge — and his coaching portfolio along with it — by opening his mind to the worlds of baseball, basketball and cross country. However, all legendary careers — and all careers in general — come to an end. Branon, who has served as an assistant to Shawnee State women’s basketball head coach Jeff Nickel during each of his first seven seasons, has retired from coaching. The 2019-20 season, in...
