Head Coach

Bobby Gilliam is no stranger to the local baseball community. As a homegrown talent with D1 and professional playing experience, Gilliam played college baseball at Centenary College, where he was the career leader in runs, walks, and stolen bases, and was 2nd in career hits. In 2003, he played professionally for the Shreveport Sports, and in 2004-2005, he played for the Gateway Grizzlies.

Gilliam’s coaching career includes being the head coach at two local high schools. His most recent coaching position was the head coach for Southwood High School (2013-2016), where he was District Coach of the Year in 2014. Prior to Southwood, Gilliam coached at Loyola College Prep from 2008-2013. He was the 2010 3-A All-State Coach of the Year and the 2012 Times All-City Coach of the Year.

"I’m really looking forward to being involved in baseball at the collegiate level and putting together a great product at BPCC,” says Gilliam. “BPCC has been growing in so many ways and having the opportunity to help grow the baseball program is a challenge that I relish. It takes a lot of pieces to build a championship program, but we definitely have the support and involvement to do just that."

Athletic Director John Rennie is ready to have Gilliam on board to steer the baseball program at BPCC. “We are thrilled to bring Bobby in as our next head baseball coach. He brings a lot of passion for the game and his players,” says Rennie. “Bobby has great experience in leading the programs he has coached to high levels of success. We’re looking forward to a great future for baseball at BPCC.”
