How does it feel to be named Dallas Morning News Coach of the Year?
It’s a great feeling.  It shows all of the hard work that we have put in to build a great basketball program at South Grand Prairie High School.
How did you find out?
I received a phone call a few days before it was printed.
What was the reaction from your peers?
All of my peers were extremely excited for me.  I received a large amount of phone calls and email congratulating me on the accomplishment. 
What does it take to be named DMN Coach of the Year?
It takes hard work, commitment, and having people in the program that buy into the philosophy of the head coach.  I truly believe that I have the best kids and coaching staff in the State of Texas.
What happens next? An award, a banquet, a check in the mail?
I am not sure, but I don’t think that I will receive any gifts or money. 
Is there anything else you would like to say?
I want thank my coaching staff, all of the kids in my basketball program, administration, faculty, parents, and the student body for all of the support that they gave us throughout the basketball season.
