The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) recently announced the state-by-state winners of its second annual High School Coach of the Year award for track & field. Episcopal's own Coach Cole took the honor for Louisiana!
Athletic Director Myra Mansur has this to say about Coach Eddie Cole:
"It a good thing Eddie coaches cross country because he is always willing to go the “extra mile”. Eddie’s expertise as a coach is evident in his team’s success…his generosity is in line with a marathon….he just keeps on giving….driving buses as needed, leading the MS annual fund, covering duties for others, playing harmonica or guitar at school and community functions while maintaining his role as teacher and lead story teller of the Physical Education Department. Congrats Coach Cole, you deserve the accolades!"
