Toby Webb Coach of the Year Award

Established in 2005-06 through the NCHSAA Endowment Fund and generous donations from Toby Webb supporters, the Toby Webb Coach of the Year Award recognizes two outstanding coaches annually, one male and one female.

This award seeks to recognize and honor coaches who have had an impact on the lives of student-athletes, and students in general, by encouraging them to succeed, by helping to develop self-confidence, ambition, a sound work ethic, and other skills necessary for success in the students' lives beyond high school. Furthermore, the coaches should be recognized for encouraging student-athletes to become well-rounded individuals (i.e. displaying excellence in areas of scholarship, citizenship, music, etc.).

Finally, the coaches should have a reputation amongst their respective peers and the athletic community for fair play, good sportsmanship, and the development of these attributes in their respective student- athletes.

Each Coach of the Year recipient will receive a $2,000 cash award and commemorative plaque and will be recognized at the NCHSAA Annual Meeting. Nominations are accepted from peers and reviewed by a special selection committee based upon the criteria set forth by Coach Toby Webb.
