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.
