Dan Woog Earns NSCAA Presidential Recognition Award

Staples High School head coach Dan Woog was honored with a “Presidential Recognition Award,” at the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s annual convention this weekend in Philadelphia.

NSCAA president Jack Huckel made the presentation at the 1st-ever LGBT Coaches and Allies reception. Woog is chair of the group, which in its 1st year in existence has helped make the NSCAA — the world’s largest soccer coaching organization — a national leader in diversity and inclusion.

The award cited Woog’s “extraordinary accomplishment and acute impact on the game of soccer, exceptional acts of courage, and values that demonstrate the highest ideals of sports including success, service, and long-lasting impact on the game.”

Trevor Lamb ’04 and Matt Lamb ’07 were at the reception.

The convention — which also drew college coaches Mike Noonan ’79 (Clemson University) and Ken Murphy ’76 (Connecticut College) — included announcements of Tom Henske as regional assistant coach of the year, and the 2012 Staples varsity as an Academic All-America team.
