[AWARDS] The National Soccer Coaches Association of America has recognized the late Layton Shoemaker, Gary Avedikian and Dave Carr for their contributions to soccer as coaches. They'll be honored at the NSCAA Awards Banquet Jan. 17 in Philadelphia.

Layton Shoemaker – Bill Jeffrey Long-Term Service Award (College)
Shoemaker was the former director of athletics and head men’s soccer coach at Messiah College. In his 23 years, Shoemaker directed the Falcons to a 316-96-27 overall record (.751), eight NCAA tournament berths, and two NCAA Final Four appearances (1986 and 1988). He was the longtime chair of the NSCAA Ethics Committee. Shoemaker died on Jan. 1, 2013 and will be posthumously recognized in January. His wife, Garie, and two sons Brent and Brett will accept the award in his honor.

Gary Avedikian - Robert W. Robinson Long-Term Service Award (High School), supported by the America Youth Soccer Organization
Avedikian started out at Centerville High School (Ohio), where he spent 15 years as the head boys coach, leading the program to a state championship in 1984. He also coached at the college level for 10 years at Ohio State and then spent one year with Chillicothe High and another six with Hilliard Davidson High School. Avedikian, a 50-year member of the NSCAA, posted a 443-195-79 career record.

Dave Carr - Charlotte Moran Long-Term Service Award (Youth)
Carr, the associate professor, graduate chair and coordinator of coaching education at Ohio University, developed the new master’s degree track in soccer coaching, a program supported by Ohio’s Patton College of Education and the NSCAA. The track, launched in June 2013, is the first sport-specific master’s degree coaching program in the United States. He has more than 40 years of experience in sports as a player, coach, administrator and educator.
