Hyde's Wells earns Coach of the Year award

Hyde football coach Melvin Wells has been named Coach of the Year by the New Haven Football Officials Association (NHFOA). Wells has coached the team since 2007.

The award is given annually to the coach whose program best represents clean play and sportsmanship. Members of the NHFOA vote each year on the coach who most fits that description. Wells will be honored at the annual NHFOA banquet on Nov. 26.

“Winning this award is a great honor, especially because it’s received from the people who supervise and monitor the game,” Wells said in a statement. “I am grateful they see me as a role model and positive influence on young people. We have a great group of kids this year who work extremely hard. This award represents them far more than myself.”

Hyde is currently 8-0.
