Alumni show their support... As Trey Lyles continues to roll up on honor after another, it is my opinion he is the greatest basketball player in history and that Coach Jason Delaney and his coaching staff and scouts are likewise the greatest in our school’s history. They have all made us proud to be connected with Arsenal Technical High School, be it as a student, alumni or friend of Tech. - Richard W. Sexson Jr.
