[AWARDS] Roy Gordon, who just completed his 32nd season as the head coach of the University of Mary Washington men's program he founded, received the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's Honor Award, the association's highest award, at its annual awards banquet on Friday in St. Louis.

Gordon, who began his career at Maine-Farmington, has a career record of 410-246-49. In 2007, he became only the eighth coach in NCAA Division III history to reach the 400-win plateau. He has led the Eagles to the NCAA Tournament nine times since 1985, winning eight Capital Athletic Conference championships during that span.

Gordon has long history of service with the NSCAA. He was its 50th president in 1999 and continues to work for the NSCAA as its assistant convention manager.

The NSCAA also recognized four members for their long-term contributions to soccer:

-- Former Hartwick coach Jim Lennox received the Bill Jeffrey Award for long-term service to intercollegiate soccer.

-- Bob Barryof the Iolani School was presented the Robert W. Robinson Award for contributions to interscholastic soccer.

-- Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association Executive Director Charlotte Moran received the Youth Long-Term Service Award.

-- Peter Broadley was recognized for his contributions to the NSCAA's coaching education program with the Mike Bertlcelli Excellence in Coaching Education Award.

Mike Pantalione of Yavapai College was recognized for the fifth time in his JC coaching career with the presentation of the 2008 NSCAA/adidas National Coach of the Year awards. He trails only legendary Indiana coach Jerry Yeagley, who has six.

Aliceann Wilber (William Smith), Dave Brandt (Messiah), Dr. Rick Wright (Manhattan Christian) and Pepe Aragon (Herkimer County Community College) each picked up their fourth Coach of the Year award. Wake Forest's Jay Vidovich repeated as Division I Men's Coach of the Year.
