The National Soccer Coaches Association of America has named Delmarva Christian High School’s Girls Soccer coach, Scott Esposito as Regional Coach of the Year for the Atlantic Region. Esposito will be receiving the coveted award in January as the NSCAA hosts its annual convention in Philadelphia.
To be considered for the award, Esposito had to meet criteria established by the NSCAA, as well as be nominated by another coach in the region. It was necessary for the coach to exhibit knowledge of the game, rapport with the team and officials, and conduct on the field, as well as seven other categories.
When asked why he thought he was chosen to receive the award, Esposito replied with characteristic humility. “Honestly, I have no idea. It was by the grace of God.”
“I’m humbled and overwhelmed. This is a team achievement,” said Esposito.
Esposito will be returning this spring as the Delmarva Christian Girls Soccer coach and has thoughtfully considered what would make this upcoming season a success. Smiling, he said, “There’s a ton of potential. We graduated four players, but we started five freshmen every game.” For Esposito, success is not measured in wins, but in the Christian character of the athletes he coaches. He encourages his team to become leaders at school and in the community. The encouragement of his players to spend time in devotions and mentoring may seem like an odd strategy to build a soccer team, but the award-winning coach knows there is more to success than winning.
