MARLBORO -- The MIAA Educational Athletics Department and Coaches Education Program recently announced that Frank Ferreer is the 2014-2015 recipient of the Girls Basketball Coach of the Year Award.
According to the nomination packet, “This award seeks to recognize and honor ‘teacher coaches’ who have had an impact on the lives of student-athletes, by encouraging them to succeed and by helping them develop self-confidence, ambition, a sound work ethic, and other skills or values necessary or helpful for success in their later lives. Award candidates should have a record of encouraging student-athletes to be well-rounded, as well as a reputation, among their peers and the athletic community, for fair play, good sportsmanship, and the development of these attributes in their student-athletes.”
In his letter to Mr. Ferreer, MIAA Assistant Director Dick Baker said that his selection “was based upon excellence of character, impact upon students and community, and coaching quality.”
