Co-coaches of the Year

Jan Northrop

University School

Terry Crowley

St. Thomas Aquinas

Comment: Northrop led the Suns (14-4) to the best record in school history. When he took over the program in 2011, he inherited a group that was ranked 158th in the state. The Suns were ranked No. 15 in the Laxpower.com Florida South Poll to end the season. Northrop said a supportive administration, a strong coaching staff and the effort from his players led to the turnaround. The Suns reached the District 29 title game.

In his fifth year, Crowley started the season missing two of his attackers and then his son and Towson commit, J.P., tore his ACL five minutes into the season. Despite the ominous start, Crowley enjoyed his best season at St. Thomas (15-6) by reaching the state tournament, making the Raiders the first Broward boys team to make it that far.
