COACH OF THE YEAR

Bruce Shatel, Delbarton (Morristown)
A Hall of Fame hockey coach—he’s won nine state titles on the ice—Shatel has shown he knows a little something about baseball too, guiding the Green Wave to the Non-Public A state title, their first since 2002. The nine-year head coach has quite a way to go to catch his father, however: Harry Shatel won a state-record 752 games in a 38-year coaching career.
