COACH OF THE YEAR
Joe Michalski, Hardin Valley Academy (Knoxville)
Going 1-for-1 is perfect. It’s also pretty amazing, considering Michalski skippered Hardin Valley into its first state tournament this year (the school opened in 2008) and won it all. The Hawks broke open a 2-2 score in the ninth inning by scoring eight runs in the Class AAA title game against rival (and defending champion) Farragut in May. Hardin Valley finished 30-15.
Player of the Year
Donny Everett, Clarksville, 6-3/230, Sr.
Everett threw 68 innings and recorded nearly twice as many strikeouts (124) on the way to a 9-1 record. The Vanderbilt signee, a 29th-round draft pick of Milwaukee, also hit .412 with a couple of home runs and 34 RBI.
