Chickasha head soccer coach Steve Scott has been named the Oklahoma Small School State Coach of the Year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America – for the fourth consecutive year.
The second-year coach was recognized for his work in his final three seasons guiding the Capitol Hill program and his inaugural season last year at Chickasha.
“It’s a big honor,” the four-time winner said after Friday’s matches. “I’ve been fortunate enough to be nominated for the past four years and to actually get it.
“We had a lot of success at Capitol Hill and I was able to make some things happen when I came over here and its nice to get recognized for it. This comes from other member coaches in my division and I want to thank them for it.”
The NSCAA, established in 1941, is the largest single-sport coaches’ organization in the world. Its mission is to help member coaches excel by offering numerous education programs as well as a wide range of member services.
In the United States, the NSCAA encompasses club, high school and college coaches and is broken down for recognition in the high school division into small, large and private parochial schools.
Scott is a past president of the Oklahoma Soccer Coaches Association and is highly respected within the coaching community. Along with his work during the school season, he, along with PC North head coach Tom Pecore, established an outdoor high school summer league in his first year at Chickasha, something needed for a long time in Oklahoma.
With both Chickasha teams currently ranked and playoff-bound, there’s a real potential for a five-peat next year.
