COACH OF THE YEAR
Mark Aquilante, Devon Prep
The veteran Devon Prep coach took a roster of mainly underclassmen and competed very well against larger schools in the tough Philadelphia Catholic League, before winning the District 12 Class 2A championship and sweeping four straight PIAA games to capture the Tide’s second state title in the last five years. Aquilante’s team played small ball flawlessly and was always very well-prepared.
