Triton HS football coach finalist in national Rose Bowl award
BOURBON, Ind. - Triton High School football coach Ron Brown is one of six finalists nationally for the Rose Bowl 'Coaches Making a Difference' award.
Every year, the Rose Bowl game honors coaches who are changing the game in the lives of their students.
The six finalists, one of whom wins the grand prize of tickets to the Rose Bowl, were announced on December 8.
While Coach Brown didn't win the grand prize, he says it still feels great to be nominated--especially by a former student.
“Pretty special to me that a student would think that much of you to take the time, especially you know being out of school for two to three years and write something up, so that’s great," said Coach Brown.
Coach Brown has been the head coach since 2015, and before that, he served as assistant coach for 5 years.
Earlier this year, he lost one of his standout players, 16-year-old Cameron Scarberry, who died in a car crash in September.
