Coach of the Year

Ray Evans

Flanagan

Comment:

In his eighth season at Flanagan, Evans had the Falcons (22-3) one run away from making their second consecutive state tournament appearance. The Falcons outscored their opponents by more than seven runs per game as they won the District 12-6A championship. "This was one of the best offensive teams that we've had since we've been here in the previous seven years," Evans said. "It was a fun team to coach. Any guy in the lineup could put one out of the park."
