“This is great for our program, it shows that all their hard work has paid off for all the kids and sets a foundation for next year,” said Head Football Coach Shawn Brown.
Coach Brown was selected as the State Coach of the Year. He is the first Academy coach to be named Coach of the Year since the league began in 2006. He was also recognized on Sunday, Feb. 25 at the Nike Coach of the Year Clinic in Orlando.
“I could not have won this award without the support of my coaching staff, the kids buying into my philosophy, and the endless support from the student body, faculty, and administration. And, needless to say, the support of my Wife,” Coach Brown said.
“The entire Academy community is extremely proud of this team and their coaching staff on their amazing season,” said Athletic Director Tom Haslam. “We’re also thrilled that Coach Brown was chosen as the State Coach of the Year. This team’s success is a direct result of hard work, dedication, and leadership that Coach Brown has demonstrated over the past few years. More than that, Coach Brown is a rock-solid role model who goes far beyond teaching football to these student-athletes.”
