Bolles Boys’ Cross Country and Track and Field Head Coach Mike Rivera has been named a Brooks Inspiring Coach of the Year. The program honors high school coaches who help and motivate young runners every day. Coaches are nominated by athletes, parents, other coaches and anyone who feels the coach is an inspiration.
“Someone in your community was moved by your actions and words when it came to influencing their running journey,” said the notice of Rivera’s honor. “We received thousands of nominations from all over the US recognizing hundreds of coaches that have gone above and beyond the normal line of coaching duties.”
As a part of the recognition, Brooks gave Rivera a gift box as a “thank you for choosing to invest in other people’s lives.”
