He guided the Wildcats to the school’s first district baseball title in 19 years in 1979, serving as head coach from 1978-82. He later returned as head coach in 1987 for a couple of seasons.  Coach Sieg also served as girls’ softball coach in 1989-90 and served as track and field coach.  He also was a long-time football trainer and assistant coach for the football team. It was during this time that he tutored many student-managers in the art of taping ankles, fingers, and wrists.  Coach Sieg also served as an athletic trainer for the Murray State football team in the 1980s.  He was able lend his boisterous personality to the public address announcer role for Trigg County football and basketball games. He later moved on to Christian County where he taught Driver’s Education and did P.A. at the Stadium of Champions. For several years, Coach Sieg was asked by the senior class to give the main address at their graduation ceremony.  He was inducted into the Trigg County High School Athletic Hall of Fame in 2012.  Through his roles as teacher, trainer, and coach, Coach Sieg remains one of the most popular icons in Trigg County High School athletic history.  Gary & his wife, Jessica, are members of Cadiz Christian Church.
