The dedication of Hillsborough County coaches is crucial to the development of local athletic programs and the success of student athletes. The Swope, Rodante Vanguard Award is proud to recognize this commitment with the Coach of the Year Award. The award is presented to one male coach and one female coach during the End of the Year Awards Banquet, as well as a $1,000 check to each coach. We encourage you to nominate coaches who you feel have left a lasting, positive impact with the school and or the school’s student athletes.
When submitting nominations remember: a coach cannot nominate him or herself, a coach can be nominated more than once, and you must include the reason why you believe this coach deserves Coach of the Year.
