Tri-Valley Community Television is now accepting nominations for Outstanding High School Coach of the Year.

This is the sixth year for Tri-Valley Sports Final’s Coach of the Year Award, according to TV30 Executive Director Melissa Tench-Stevens. “The coach motivates and provides guidance to the students and many times their support is so powerful it influences the students for the rest of their lives. We look forward to recognizing this year’s winning coach for his or her dedication with this award.”

Last year’s winner was Nathan Brandon, varsity boys water polo coach at Livermore High School, who was nominated by both students and parents. The Coach of the Year is selected by popular vote throughout the Tri-Valley.

To nominate a coach, go to tv30.org, click on the "Nominate Your Coach" banner on the website, and fill out the short form. The deadline for nominations is midnight on March 29.

The winner will be announced at the Tri-Valley Sports Final Outstanding High School Athletic Awards ceremony at the Robert Livermore Community Center on April 14.
