Ryan Richardson Hired as New Hallsville Activities Director

Current Harrisburg girls basketball coach and activities director Ryan Richardson has been named the new activities director and facilities coordinator at Hallsville. Richardson takes over for the retiring Brad Blakemore. He says he’s looking forward to the next step in his career.

Blakemore had worked in the Hallsville School District since 1994. Richardson says he’s looking forward to following in his footsteps.

Richardson is in his seventh year as girls basketball coach at Harrisburg and his third year as activities director. He enters Hallsville at the same time as new superintendent Tyler Walker. Richardson says that’s another exciting aspect of going to Hallsville.

Richardson will be working with new and current Hallsville staff to finalize the hiring of a new football coach following the departure of Justin Conyers to Columbia Hickman.
