22 Named Assistant Football Coaches of the Year 

JACKSON – More than 20 assistant football coaches from across Michigan have been honored as 2020 Assistant Football Coaches of the Year. 

“Every head coach will tell you that having a great coaching staff is paramount to success on the field,” said Scott Farley, executive director of the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association. “These coaches devote an incredible amount of time and energy to watching film, implementing game plans and teaching student athletes the game of football. They are tremendous role models in the communities in which they coach.” 

Assistant coaches were nominated by their head coach and selected by a MHSFCA panel. Those chosen as 2020 Assistant Football Coaches of the Year are: 

  • Craig Bauer, Traverse City St. Francis 
  • Mitch Hubbard, Reading 
  • Shawn Fitzgerald, Swartz Creek 
  • Ray Fisher, Kingsley 
  • Tim Hartson, Byron Center 
  • Bill Brenner, Walled Lake Central 
  • Steve Herrick, Corunna 
  • Eric Jennings, Lake Orion 
  • Corey Slater, Jackson 
  • David Randall, Oakridge 
  • Gary Griffith, Stoney Creek 
  • Gregory Maynard, Bendle 
  • David Frendt, Marine City 
  • James VandenBerg, Sparta 
  • Jay Lake, Temperance-Bedford 
  • Scott Wicke, Beaverton 
  • Dave Check, Mona Shores 
  • Brad Barnette, New Lothrop 
  • Anthony Merlo, Stoney Creek 
  • Travis Harbin, Mayville 
  • Ken Ranjel, Evart 
  • Jesse Thelen, Pewamo-Westphalia 

The Assistant Coaches of the Year honor is part of the post-season awards being announced by the MHSFCA.  

Andrew Pratley, the president of the MHSFCA, learned the value of an assistant coach because his father was one.  

“Growing up in the home of an assistant football coach I learned to appreciate what it was like to put in a great deal of time but rarely receiving recognition for the work,” said Pratley, the head coach at St. Joseph. “As a head coach I have always tried to show my appreciation for the work assistant coaches put it. To me the assistant coach of the year awards is one of the top awards our association gives.” 

The MHSFCA announced All-Region teams in all eight divisions of 11-player football and two divisions of 8-player football in November, along with Regional coaches of the year. All-State teams for each division will be announced soon and a Dream Team at the virtual coaches clinic in January. 

The MHSFCA and its members have been devoted to the promotion of high school football since its inception in March 1972.
