CIF Honors 2021-22 Model Coach Award Winners SACRAMENTO, CALIF. –
The CIF State office today announced the 2021-22 Model Coach Award winners. Now in its 21st year, the CIF Model Coach Award program is designed to recognize coaches who have served as positive role models in their schools and communities, and who have exhibited the traits apparent in the 16 principles of Pursuing Victory with Honor. A model coach demonstrates and teaches the six core ethical values: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship (the “Six Pillars of Character”). The CIF believes that the highest potential of sports is achieved when teachers/coaches consciously Teach, Enforce, Advocate, and Model (T.E.A.M.) these values and are committed to the ideal of Pursuing Victory with Honor. “We recognize and honor those transformational coaches who take pride in guiding the student-athletes they mentor,” said CIF Executive Director Ron Nocetti.
“Since 1995 Morrill has been the field hockey coach and counselor at Scripps Ranch High School and truly cares about each student-athlete on and off the field. She is more than a coach, she’s a mentor and teacher who is enthusiastic and compassionate. Coach Morrill motivates, builds confidence, reinforces good sportsmanship, encourages teamwork, instills a love of the game, and inspires each student-athlete to believe in themselves. She has made a positive difference in the life of every player who has been a part of her program.” ~ CIF State
