Coach of the Year- Awarded to the coach who has shown the most consistent excellence throughout the season from a wins and losses perspective.

Program of the Year- Awarded to the youth football program who best exemplifies the “Winning Youth Football” philosophy of having consistently competitive teams across the organization, but also have high retention rates and a reputation for sportsmanlike play.

    Hey Dave,
    I must say it has been a very fun and emotional year. I coach the K/1 Orange Lakota Stallion Football Team in Liberty Township, Ohio. I was asked to Head Coach in June and only had 5 players. Finally, in August we, had 14 players that included 2- 4 year olds, 6 kindergartners, and 6 1st graders in which, we were all first year…including the coaches.
    No one ever thought that we would even make it to the playoffs. I really studied your book and the Single Wing. I am here to proudly say that we didn’t lose a game in our division, but we played 2 teams in a higher level and were beaten. We were winning our Super Bowl 16-0, but our 2 best players were injured and we lost 34-24 against a team that had 30 kids. Our record was 8-3 for the year but the Single Wing worked great and I was impressed how easy it was to follow.

      Coach Dirr,

      Congratulations on a great season. Ron Jennings does an excellent job with your group. The Lakota Stallions is a great model for youth programs to copy.
