The National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) today announced its selections as National High School Coaches of the Year for 2013.

 

It is the 14th year straight year the NHSCA has honored these achievers in the high school coaching community nationwide. This year’s recipients, selected in a total of 20 boys and girls sports, are from 17 different states. Two come from California, Michigan and Texas with 14 states claiming one honoree each.

 

While these coaches represent a multitude of different backgrounds, they exhibit a common theme: a strong dedication to supporting and developing high school student-athletes.

 

"The coaches we are honoring today are outstanding examples for successful high school coaches in their sports,” NHSCA executive director Bob Ferraro Jr. said. "They place a high value on the teamwork skills their players learn for success in the classroom and on the field, and we are proud to be honoring them.”
