FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Andy Stout, physical education teacher at Concordia Lutheran High School, has been recognized two times over for his coaching work in the community.
He has been named the 2016 Regional Coach of the Year for Youth Girls in the North Region. The National Soccer Coaches Association of America gives this award annually at its national convention that was held in Los Angeles in January.
He was nominated for this honor by the Fort Wayne Sport Club after guiding the U16 Girls Strikers to the Presidents Cup National Championship Game.
He was also named a finalist for the 2016 Indiana Soccer’s Girls Travel Coach of the Year Award for his work with the Fort Wayne Sport Club.
This award recognizes the extensive time and energy that a coach has given to the sport of soccer.
“You have been a positive role model for other coaches, volunteers and the youth in your community,” the committee wrote to Stout. “Your work and your successes have not gone unnoticed as you were nominated by those in your club that know you best!”
