Jackson New Mexico Coach of the Year
Posted on 1800/01/01
Hobbs High School cross country coach Bob Jackson is the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) High School Coach of the Year for New Mexico.
Jackson led the Hobbs High School boys team to its second consecutive state championship in November and also coached two-time state champion Andrew Bosquez, a HHS senior.
The USTFCCA on Wednesday named its state-by-state winners. One boys coach and one girls coach from each state were honored for their successes during the fall of 2016 as selected by a committee of experts from around the nation.
State-by-state winners were selected based on their teams’ performances throughout the 2016 cross country season. Among the factors taken into consideration were team score and placement at the state championships, margin of victory, performance against rankings if available, individual championships, and how their teams’ performances stacked up to previous years
Each honoree will receive a trophy from the USTFCCCA recognizing his or her achievements.
The winners from each state are in consideration for the association’s National High School Cross Country Coach of the Year award. One boys coach and one girls coach from among all the states will be selected by a panel of experts and be announced later this month as the national winners.
