Grubb to lead Lady Cougars

DUBLIN — Jason Grubb played football under former Coach Joel Hicks the last time he was at Pulaski County High School.
Now, the 30-year-old is returning home to serve as head coach of the girls basketball team and teach math.
However, just because Grubb’s playing background is in football, that doesn’t mean he’s not well versed in hoops.
The 1995 graduate has years of experience in coaching both girls and boys basketball. He spent the past five years as the inaugural head coach of the girls basketball team at South County Secondary School in Fairfax County. The school, which includes grades seven through 12, is in the Northern Region AAA Patriot District.
“I’m honored to have been selected head coach at PCHS,” Grubb said. “I have a lot of respect for the school, its students and administration, and its athletic program.”
He said he feels honored to be a part of such a successful and well-respected program.
Grubb takes over for Brenda King, who left PCHS to take the coaching job at Hidden Valley.
The Pulaski native made his coaching debut at Blacksburg Middle School, where he assisted Head Coach Jim Shockley on the boys team.
When the head coaching position on the schools’ girls basketball team came available the following year, Grubb started coaching the girls in the fall and assisted with the boys team in the winter.
He later moved on to Christiansburg High School, where he was an assistant boys basketball coach for a year before moving to Northern Virginia. There, he was the head girls basketball coach at Falls Church High School for “a couple of years.”
Grubb said the PCHS girls basketball team, which finished 20-6 last season, started out-of-season conditioning Thursday night. They hope to soon start “team showcasing” and camps on weekends, he noted.
“I look forward to working with this talented group of girls from PCHS,” Grubb added. “I think we can be very successful.”
Grubb is the son of Ken Grubb in Dublin. His sister and brother-in-law, Lori and Mike King of Pulaski, have a three-year-old daughter, Emily.
