Thompson is "Coach of the Year"

12-24-13 —     Wayne County coach Shawn Thompson has been selected as the 

Louisville Courier-Journal's state-wide Coach of the Year. Thompson 

was featured in an article published in the Louisville newspaper on 

Friday, December 20.

    The 2013 season for the Cardinals was the most successful of 

Thompson's  10-year career at the helm of the football program. The 

Cards went undefeated in the regular season, won their first regional 

title and played in the program's first-ever state championship 

contest. Wayne County lost to Belfry 3-0 and finished the season at 

14-1 and were state runners-up in Class 3A.

    Thompson received 14 votes from coaches around the state, according 

to the Courier-Journal. Belfry's Phillip Haywood was second in this 

year's voting with 13.

    "I'm a simple guy, so this is a great honor with so many great high 

school football coaches in the state of Kentucky," Thompson told the 

Courier-Journal. "I accept it on behalf of Wayne County. Without the 

kids and the support of the community, I wouldn't be anywhere."

    Thompson was also voted Class 3A Coach of the Year.
