NMHSCA Awards Program

The NMHSCA Coaches Recognition & Awards Program is designed to recognize New Mexico's most accomplished NMHSCA member coaches.  The impact a coach has on the life of a student is tremendous, and the NMHSCA Board of Directors is proud to recognize all the outstanding coaches every year at the annual Bobby Gibbs Awards Show during the annual NMHSCA Coaches Clinic.  You can nominate coaches for any of the NMHSCA Awards by scrolling to the bottom of the page.



Bobby Gibbs Awards Show

The 2020 Bobby Gibbs Awards Show has been postponed to 2021 Coaches Clinic.  At the time, the NMHSCA will formally recognize the all 2020 & 2021 Award Winners.  The NMHSCA will also recognize this year's awards winners during the official regional and general meetings of the NMHSCA currently scheduled for Tuesday, July 28th & Thursday, July 30th, 2020.
