Hawkins receives Coach of the Year honorFebruary 19, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
On Tuesday afternoon, Heritage Hills boys basketball head coach Nate Hawkins was recognized by the Hoosier Basketball Coaches Association as one of their four Coaches of the Year.
The HBCA, which works with Southern Indiana boys basketball, selected Hawkins as their winner for the District 2 coach of the year. Bloomfield’s Ron McBride, East Central’s David Disbro and Southwestern (Hanover)’s Jerry Bomholt were the other recipients for their respective districts.
Hawkins has guided the Patriots to a 21-1 record this season and the No. 4 ranking in the Associated Press Class 3A boys basketball rankings.
He has a 119-40 record overall throughout his career coaching tenure at both Forest Park and Heritage Hills and has won over 20 games three different times (2011, 2018, 2019).
The Patriots have three players that currently average over 10 points per game — junior Murray Becher (20.7), junior Simon Scherry (15.8) and sophomore Blake Sisley (13.3).
They will begin their sectional journey with a battle against Evansville Bosse next Tuesday at Boonville.
