Calvin Christian is pleased to announce that longtime coach and athletic director Bill Stout, was presented with the prestigious Coaching Legend award at a banquet on Nov. 9.
Bill was presented this award for his many years of coaching Cross Country. He is the first Calvin Christian coach to be recognized this way. His name will be in the Hall of Champions in Balboa Park along with all past recipients. The award is based on success on the field or court, integrity, and being a positive role model for young people.
During his years as Cross Country coach Bill was known for encouraging all students to participate regardless of ability. His teams won nine CIF-San Diego Section titles and finished as runners-up five times. In 1999 his team finished fourth at the State Finals.
At the event honoring the new inductees Bill gave an outstanding speech. I am including a link so that you can read it.
Congratulations Bill, thank you for doing it right for so long and for your well deserved award.
