WMBD/WYZZ-TV - PEORIA, Ill. - School's in for Sergio McClain.
Even though class has yet to begin at Champaign Central High School, McClain is already in mid-season form. The former Peoria Manual All-Stater is counting down the days when he'll join his father in coaching high school hoops.
Former Peoria Manual head coach Wayne McClain will lead Champaign Central this season and his son will be an assistant.
"Going over there and showing them what type of cloth we're cut from, that is Peoria," said Sergio McClain while watching his son attend a basketball camp in Peoria this week. "Just showing (the players) our ways. We're looking forward to it."
As a player, Sergio McClain led Manual to four straight Class AA state championships (1994-97). Wayne McClain was the Rams' head coach for the final three titles.
