COACH OF THE YEAR

ANDY TARPLEY, College Park -- Tarpley's Falcons hit their stride midway through the 2014 campaign, winning 13 straight to close the season with a 27-3 record. Along the way, College Park beat rival Clayton Valley Charter twice to win the Diablo Valley Athletic League regular season title and once more in the league tournament championship game. In the North Coast Section Division II playoffs, the second-seeded Falcons outscored their four opponents 30-3, claiming their first section crown since 2008. "It was kind of a perfect storm for the way we kind of peaked at the end," Tarpley said. "We took care of our business and played consistently."
