Coaches Corner

The end of 2006 marks the end of the Arizona Coaches Association presidency for me. I welcome Mike Brown as he heads up this organization for the next two years. I have worked with Mike as a coach, as well as on our ACA board, having coached his son in track. Mike will make a great leader for our association.

I leave behind a network of people that have created a much better all star game for our youth and, under Mike’s direction and especially the football coaches, the games will get better each and every year.

Please visit the website for the selection dates that will be set soon. The fall selection meeting is the first, and is always the Sunday after the last of the football championship games. Be sure to attend that meeting and get ready to plan for outstanding summer games for our youth.

Remember to also visit the website and download scholarship information for our athletes as well. The Touchstone Scholarship and the AIA scholarships are great opportunities for our players to be successful in school as well.

The Hall of Fame forms are also on the website and the decision is made at the Fall Selection Meeting for those new members as well. Please take the time to fill out the forms for those coaches nominations. And look for the new ACA Hall of Fame meeting room to be opened at the Surprise Recreation Campus.

For more information about the Arizona Coaches Association, please go to the website at or contact Mike Brown at Greenway High School. We look forward to seeing you at the coaches’ selection meetings and the summer games.

It has been a pleasure to serve the Arizona Coaches Association.
