Coach Bob Hartranft, who guided the Farmingdale High School boys lacrosse team to the 2011 New York State Class A championship, has been selected as the winner of US Lacrosse’s 2013 Gerald J. Carroll Exemplary Coaching Award.
It was the first state title in a long and successful 45-year tenure as Dalers coach for Hartfranft, a former basketball player who came to FHS originally intending to coach baseball.
The award annually recognizes one boys’ high school coach in the country “whose success is best measured not in victories but in the support and guidance given to the balanced growth and development of young men who play the game.”
The award, established in 1994, honors a coach who exhibited support and care for players in their growth and development as young adults. They help mold leaders on and off the field.
