Congratulations Coach Andy Lowry - Recipient of The American Football Coaches Foundation Power of Influence Award!!
Excerpt From AFCF Website:
The Power of Influence award was created as a way for the AFCA and AFCF to honor a deserving high school football coach. Coaches who receive this award are recognized for their impact on their team and players, as well as the legacy they leave with the school and community. This award is not based on wins and losses; however, it is noted that coaches of powerful influence have longevity and success. It is the first AFCA award specifically designed to honor a high school coach.
“This award means much more that any other coaching awards that I have ever won,” said Lowry. “It goes beyond winning and losing and is an award for making an impact or difference in others’ lives, our school and community. I try to be a faithful person and a servant first in my job. God has blessed me in so many ways. I love my job working with young people and I have the best assistant coaches that any coach could ever wish for. They are the reason that we have won five state championships since 1999. This is an honor that I will accept on behalf of Columbine High School, my coaches, my family and most importantly, our great kids that have worked and excelled in our program for the past 19 years.”
