Jasper High School’s tennis program technically began in 1965, but through its first five years, hardly anyone noticed. Then Ed Yarbrough came along in 1970 and changed the culture of tennis in Jasper. The Wildcats became a tennis powerhouse for both boys and girls. When Ed retired, his son Scott became coach, and the Wildcats didn't skip a beat. Jasper will honor 50 years of the Yarbrough family's influence on Wildcat tennis with a special plaque-presentation ceremony Friday, Feb. 14, during halftime of the Jasper-Castle boys basketball game.
