For the first time, the 2017 event will also recognize DC-area high school coaches who demonstrate “Pyramid of Success” teachings.

Previous Nell and John Wooden Leadership in Coaching Award recipients include: Jim Boeheim (Syracuse University), Dale Brown (Louisiana State University), John Calipari (University of Kentucky) and Mike Krzyzewski (Duke University).
