Congratulations to Fred for winning this award! Fred has consistently produced great vaulters, while teaching a solid work-ethic, sharing knowledge with other coaches, and doing it all with a smile. He has remained a constant student of the event, even though he is an "old timer" ;)

Even a triple-bypass couldn't keep the guy away from practice for more than two weeks! Keep up the good work, Fred!
