National Coaches Day 2022

On September 19, 1972, President Richard Nixon signed proclamation 4157 declaring October 6, 1972, as National Coaches Day.

“Coaches are highly qualified teachers in highly specialized fields. But more than that, they are friends and counselors who help to instill in their charges important attitudes that will serve them all their lives. A coach can help a young person learn how to win gracefully and how to grow from defeat. A coach can help build moral fiber on which our future as a nation depends.” – President Richard Nixon.

1st place: Michael Thomas, Thomson, GA

“Coach Thomas has been the Head Boys Basketball coach at Thomson High School for over 40 years and still going. During that time he’s been a pillar in the Thomson community. He’s a father figure for the majority of our boys that come from single-parent households, a pastor, and holds many more responsibilities in our community. He domains self-discipline and good behavior from his players. He sent multiple young men to school and helped several of them land coach jobs of their own. He is a great coach because he can change with the times, listens to his players, and holds them accountable for their actions on and off the court.”

2nd place: Jason Watanabe, Cerritos, CA

Our coach goes above and beyond as he makes the team feel like a family. The most important aspect of our team is not winning or running fast times, but more importantly, the bond we create throughout the season/school year. He makes each and every athlete feel like they are meant to be there as he treats us with care and also, rewards us with fun activities.”

3rd place: Justin Abbot, Washington, UT

“Tirelessly and lovingly strives to help players be the best all-around person they can be.”
