NFHS State, Sectional and National Winners in the Coach of the Year Awards
The National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) recently announced State, Sectional and National winners in the Coach of the Year awards program. South Carolina had a banner year in each category. Please review the chart below to find our recognized coaches this year.
“To be recognized for their expertise, dedication and willingness to continue to educate oneself in a specific high school sport says a lot about our honorees. What an accomplishment! These professionals make South Carolina very proud and are just a sampling of the quality coaches our student athletes work with every day. I applaud NFHS efforts to carry on the tradition of highlighting hard work, virtue and talent across the nation,” states Jerome Singleton, Commissioner.
State and Sectional winners will receive a certificate while the National winners will be presented a commemorative plaque.
