After leading Neligh-Oakdale to an undefeated 8-0 record, Warrior coach Ron Beacom has been recognized with the Mike Behrens Coaching Award.
Huskerland Prep announced Beacom as the Class D1 recipient of the award.
The Mike Behrens Coaching Award was designated to recognize a coach’s ability to bring out the best in his team, creating a sense of overachievement. Coach Behrens was a coach at Omaha Roncalli in 2003 who despite having a roster of 20 in Class B reached the state finals with an undefeated record.
Beacom was recognized after taking the Warriors to an 8-0 regular season, including a season-opening 72-44 win over a Creighton team that would finish just one game shy of the state finals.
According to Huskerland Prep, Beacom now has a career coaching record of 123-51.
