Starnes earns coveted Leadership Award

Crittenden County head football coach Al Starnes received the Joe Russell Distinguished Leadership Award presented Sunday, Dec. 13, 2015 by the West Kentucky Football Conference at its annual awards banquet.

The award is presented annually to the coach who most exemplifies leadership, sportsmanship, ethics and integrity; and in doing so, has instilled those attributes in their staff and players.

The coach said he was humbled and very grateful to be selected for the highly coveted honor. Starnes said it is a reflection of the entire Rocket football program and he appreciates the dedication and dignity in which the entire staff and players display.

Starnes was also named the WKC’s Coach of the Year for all classes.

He also recently was honored by the Kentucky Coaches Association as Coach of the Year Class A in the First Region.
