Gold Star Coaches

Four Tooele County School District coaches were honored with the “Gold Star Coach Award” this month. 

Grantsville High baseball coach Aaron Perkins: Stansbury High tennis and soccer coach Jacob Jones; former Tooele football coach Andru Jones; and Wendover High basketball coach Kyle Murphy were selected by their school’s administration as “Gold Star Coaches.”

The purpose of the “Gold Star Coach Award” is to assist schools in promoting sportsmanship by recognizing coaches who lead by example in creating a positive and competitive environment throughout their programs.

To be considered for this award, a coach should be a role model for students. They must demonstrate positive behavior both on and off the field or court. They should inspire students to strive for success in all aspects of their lives demonstrating how to work hard, be self disciplined, be a leader, and serve others.

“Gold Star Coaches” are selected by their school’s administration as a coach who exemplifies all these qualities. 

“Gold Star Coaches” are considered for statewide recognition as a classification award winner. The UHSAA sportsmanship committee will announce the state level winners this month.
