COACH OF THE YEAR
Jake Hoover, Roncalli (Omaha)
Hoover guided the Crimson Pride to the second state championship in program history, the first since 1981, but it was anything but easy. Roncalli (18-5) led just once in the Class B state championship game against Norris, winning on a bases-loaded, two-out, full-count walk-off base hit.
