In 2011, David Larson of Highline High School was selected. In 2012, Velko Vitalich of West Seattle was selected. For the 2013 season, the membership chose Hal DeBerry of Newport High School in Bellevue. On Thursday, June 13th, at an all school assembly, the award was presented to Coach DeBerry along with a framed certificate and engraved plaque.
