COACH OF THE YEAR

STEVE LUETTE, SOUTH CARROLL Luette guided the Cavaliers to their second straight county championship and their seventh consecutive appearance in the Class 2A West playoffs. South Carroll opened the season with a 40-2 drubbing of North Hagerstown on the road. The following week in its home opener, SC held on for a 36-30 win over North Harford. The Cavaliers lost to South Hagerstown, 21-20, in Week 3. After that, they wouldn't lose again until the playoffs. South Carroll went a perfect 7-0 in county play. Its closest competition was in Week 5 against Manchester Valley, when SC won 20-7. The Cavs beat Liberty 28-0 in their county opener in Week 4. The Lions finished third in Carroll. SC also beat second-place Century 42-7 in Week 9, when it sealed the county title. The Cavaliers notched five shutouts, including in Week 10 against Westminster. That was the first time in 48 meetings between the two teams that the Cavs shut out their biggest rival. In their playoff opener against Marriotts Ridge, the Cavaliers won 21-0, marking their third postseason victory over the past two seasons. The Cavs weren't able to win a regional title for the second straight season, but gave state finalist Walkersville a close game in the 2A West final. South Carroll fell to the Lions 17-14, ending its season on its home grass at Parker Field. The Cavaliers have made the playoffs in all seven of Luette's seasons, although they couldn't make it back to the state semifinal, which they reached in 2014.
