COTY

Coach of the Year (COTY)

The Billy Jack Talton Coach of the Year Award is given to the individual who is active in the training and coaching of drug free athletes at every level of competition, from local to international. They reflect selfless dedication to helping athletes realize their goals, whether they be improved health, greater strength, or increasing success in powerlifting competition. Recipients of the COTY give of themselves unselfishly, often at great personal expense and in lieu of success as athletes themselves. The individual selected as the COTY is recognized by their peers and fellow athletes for helping others reach their athletic dreams.
