"They are such a great group to work with in how well they get along and respect each other, yet challenge each other to get better every day. They make every day enjoyable and practices are the highlights of my day." - Tanner Graham
The USTFCCCA announced Lexington cross country coach Tanner Graham South Carolina cross country coach of the year. Read what he says about the honor inside.
The USTFCCCA named a total of 102 coaches -- one girls and one boys coach in each state and the District of Columbia -- to its list of awardees, selected by an expert committee.
Factors the committee took into consideration when selecting the year's top coaches included team performance over the course of the fall 2022 season, state championship performances, margin of victory, individual championships, performance in relation to rankings and team history.
Each winning coach will be in the running for the 2022 USTFCCCA National High School Cross Country Coach of the Year Award awarded next month, an honor given to one girls and one boys coach.
