FloSports Announces 3rd Annual Hometown Heroes Program To Award $25,000

2019 Hometown Heroes Nominations

Nominations open now thru May 31 to identify communities’ most influential coaches!

AUSTIN, TX -- March 12th, 2019 -- FloSports, the innovator in live sports and original content, today announced the launch of the 2018 Hometown Heroes program, an award that recognizes the finest coaches across the country who have made an impact in their community by changing high-school-age athletes’ lives for the better.

Kicking off the third year of the Hometown Heroes program, FloSports will again join forces with Quicken Loans, America’s largest mortgage lender*, to award one deserving coach with a $25,000 prize. The nationwide search will spotlight influential coaches who provide the fundamental groundwork for their athletes to excel, including building strong communities and demonstrating the importance of teamwork, goal-setting and work ethic. 

The nomination process begins now and will end on May 31. All nominations must be entered through FloSports. The criteria that each nominee must meet include:

· Be a coach of high school-age athletes

· Have a strong presence in their community

· Continue to enrich their athletes' lives all around

· Have received praise from other coaches and peers

Once all nominations are received, FloSports will select five finalists to move forward to the final round of voting. All five finalists will be featured in a video series that will focus on the impact each coach has on their team and in their community. The video series will be published across FloSports' network of more than 20 dedicated sports sites. From the five finalists, FloSports users will vote to ultimately select one grand prize winner. 

“There are so many coaches across the country that deserve to be recognized for their hard work and dedication,” said Mark Floreani, CEO of FloSports. “This program allows us to show our appreciation to the ones who have gone above and beyond their job description by laying the groundwork for their athletes to succeed at the next level and in life. The past two years, we heard so many amazing stories from some truly remarkable coaches around the country, and we are excited to once again meet more great coaches.”

Last year, Darrell General, a track and cross-country coach from George C. Marshall High School in Virginia won the grand prize. He was chosen from more than 1,000 nominations from around the country. 

To nominate an influential coach, please go HERE by May 31.
