Matt Lovorn - Stratford High School
Why Honored: Lovorn has spent 13 years coaching Stratford football, with seven of those spent as head coach. He earned his first state title as a head coach in the 2022 season.
Lovorn and his team faced off against Falls City in the championship game and overcame an eight-point deficit at the half to take home the title 39-27. The head coach was willing to take risks for this big win, going for it on fourth down a total of six times, and being successful on five attempts, throughout the championship game.
