Past Coaching Awards:
Wrestling Coach Pat Uveino Receives N-O Coach of the Year Award - March, 2020
Head Coach Pat Uveino received the Niagara-Orleans (N-O) Coach of the Year award. This award is voted on by the N-O coaches. Coach Uveino has been the Purple Eagles head coach since 2016. Prior to that, he was the assistant coach for 15 years.
When asked about his award Coach Uveino stated, “It is an honor to accept this award on behalf of all the coaches, wrestlers and families of our program. This award is voted on by the coaches in our league so it speaks volumes on how our coaching staff and wrestlers are viewed by other teams. I have been blessed to be surrounded by phenomenal coaches that not only coach our kids but inspire them as well. We all bring something different to the table and David Skrip, Mike Sanders, Will Francis, Preston Flugel and Jordan Wolcott have done an amazing job to continue helping our kids not only with wrestling but with all challenges they may encounter. A special thanks to all the wrestlers. They truly are the epitome of hard work and sacrifice. The amount of time and effort they put into the wrestling season is unmatched and for that I am truly grateful."
