2017 NEPSAC Awards Presented to Jeremy Foley of Holderness School and Bob Southall of Loomis Chaffee School

By BOB YORK

You can rest assured the 2017 Martin William Souders Memorial Award that the New England Prep School Athletic Council presented to Jeremy Foley during its Annual Meeting on Friday at the DCU Center in Worcester will be in good company no matter where Foley finds a home for it.

The former University of Florida athletic director could slip this latest award between a couple of his other favorites. There’s the Street & Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal National Athletic Director of the Year Award he earned in 2006 and the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame’s John L. Toner Award. The Toner Award was presented to Foley in 2007 in acknowledgement of his being named the foundation’s Athletic Director of the Year for demonstrating administrative abilities, especially in the area of college football.

2016 NEPSAC Awards Presented to Jim Oates, Middlesex '65 and Kate Turner of Brewster Academy

By BOB YORK
 
Even with the wildest of imaginations, it’s doubtful Jim Oates ever saw something like this coming: being named the recipient of an award that had previously been won by such notables as former President George H.W. Bush, Olympic hockey hero Mike Eruzione and New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick.

Nor could Kate Turner ever have foreseen being bestowed an honor that in prior years had been presented to longtime Taft School athletic director and legendary baseball coach Larry Stone, fabled Greenwich Academy field hockey and lacrosse mentor Angela Tammaro and Ken Martin, who won more hockey games at Belmont Hill School than any other high school or prep school coach in Massachusetts history.
