[AWARDS] The NSCAA honored former U.S. national team coaches Manfred Schellscheidt and Bob Gansler for their work in college and youth soccer, respectively, and Jeff Farnsworth of Spencerport (N.Y.) High School for his work in high school soccer.

Schellscheidt, who retired last year as the Seton Hall men’s coach, earned the Bill Jeffrey Award, an award that recognizes long-term service to college soccer.

He also enjoyed success at all levels of coaching. He was the head coach of the Seton Hall men’s team for 24 years, leading the Pirates to two Big East titles and eight NCAA Tournament berths.

For his long-term service to youth soccer, Gansler was named the Charlotte Moran Award recipient. He coached at all levels, winning an MLS title with the Kansas City Wizards in 2000 and leading the USA to its first World Cup finals in 40 years when he took it to the 1990 finals in Italy.

Throughout his career, Gansler has been active in youth and club soccer in Wisconsin and across the country. He’s become one of the nation’s top youth soccer educators. Now retired, he serves as an NSCAA National Staff coach.

Farnsworth is the Robert W. Robinson Award recipient. In addition to his work at Spencerport High School, he spent time as a youth and ODP coach, college assistant and W-League coach.
