Under Gilliam, the BPCC baseball facilities have seen significant improvements including, a new batting cage equipped with artificial turf and lighting. A new press box and turf halo was added to the baseball complex prior to the start of the 2018 season.

A homegrown talent with NCAA Division I and professional playing experience, Gilliam played collegiately at Centenary College, where he was the career leader in runs, walks, and stolen bases, and was second 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, Southwood and his alma mater Loyola College Prep.

He was the 2010 LHSAA Class 3A All-State Coach of the Year and the 2012 Times All-City Coach of the Year.

"Competing against the best is what competing is all about,” said Gilliam. “This conference gives players so many opportunities to find out how good they can be. It will always be a challenge to win games in Region 14, and we embrace this competition and want players that are up to the challenge. We want to build teams that love to play hard, and players that want to grow as a people and in the game mentally. It’s a process and structure to build a championship level program. It takes a lot of pieces and development. We have a good structure in place with all our coaches and are steadily shaping and putting our plan in place.”
