Announcing our 2017 Coaches of the Year!

It is with great pleasure that GFLA announces the recipients of the 2017 Bill Borland Award for Excellence in Coaching, otherwise known as the "Coach of the Year" award.   This year's recipients are:

Clark Andersen -  Boys Coach (10U A)

Dirk Young -- Girls Coach (5/6 B)

 

All of our coaches are top-notch.  These two non-parent coaches went above and beyond

and made us all extra proud to participate in Great Falls Lacrosse!

 

About Bill Borland:

Wilfred W. “Bill” Borland, Jr., grew up in Northern Virginia and attended Marshall High School where he was an avid wrestler.  He went on to wrestle at LSU and returned to Virginia after serving two years in the military, settling in Great Falls.    Bill was passionate about sports as a player, parent and coach.  Friends describe Bill as “100 percent into” coaching and supporting youth sports.   He was known for his positive coaching manner with the kids and his ability to motivate them.  These qualities enabled Bill to be a revered coach of a variety of sports, some of which he never played, including lacrosse, soccer, football and wrestling.   Bill also supported youth sports through other volunteering.  He coached Great Falls Lacrosse during its first seasons following its formation in 1995.   His varied career included construction and electrical and Bill applied his knowledge and energy toward modernizing the concession stand at Langley HS (named after Bill), bringing sewer and water lines to the stadium.   One of his last projects was to finalize the installation of drop-down lighting in the Langley wresting facility.    Bill was the father of four, Michelle, Brian, Jason and Sean, each of whom attended Langley HS and participated in sports.  Bill’s tragic death in a 2003 left a hole in the hearts of his family, friends, and members of the Great Falls lacrosse community.   We are honored each year to recognize those coaches who, like Bill, are leaving a lasting mark on our boys and girls well into the future.
