Conway Springs assistant football coach Fred Cottrell and Iola girls basketball coach Becky Carlson are being inducted into the National High School Athletic Coaches Association next month.
Cottrell is a longtime assistant football coach at Conway Springs and Douglass. He was with Mark Bliss when the coach brought the single-wing offense to Conway Springs and turned that program into one of the state’s best. Cottrell has coached boys and girls basketball and track, as well.
Carlson spent 20-plus years at Hillsboro as its girls coach and most recently won a Class 4A title at Iola in 2006.
