Co-Coaches of the YearDavid Beckerman
Comment: In eight seasons at Pine Crest, Beckerman has led the Panthers to six state tournament appearances and three championships, the most recent of which came this season. Pine Crest (24-7) won the 4A title with a 63-57 victory over Lake Highland Prep. The Panthers recorded a number of big victories including a 1-point regional semifinal victory over University School and a 17-point comeback against Tampa Berkeley Prep in the state semifinals.
Coach's quote: "This is one of the few teams that from the beginning of the season to the end of the season improved a great deal. When you have players like Eddie Waite and Brandon Knight, it's a different scenario. Those are fine skilled players. This is a team that got better and understood the team concept."
Comment: It may have been Stephenson's first year with the Patriots, but the veteran coach has plenty of experience. Despite having a roster dominated by underclassmen, Stephenson's Patriots advanced to the state tournament for the first time in school history. They finished with a 25-6 record after a 75-44 state semifinal loss to eventual champion Lake Wales. This season, Heritage also earned the District 16-5A title with a 66-56 win over Dillard.
Coach's quote: "It was great being a first-year coach [at Heritage] and winning our first district title, our first regional title and going to state for the first time. That was extremely special. With this team being so young, people didn't know what we were going to achieve, but that's what you want as a coach—a team that performs and exceeds expectations. They set a precedent now and it's going to be hard to second-act it, but with our youth, I think we can do that."Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
