Prior to his weekly Monday press conference this week, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was honored with United States Sports Academy’s 2013 Amos Alonzo Stagg Coaching Award.
“It’s a tremendous honor. This means a lot personally and for our family,” Harbaugh remarked upon receiving this distinguished award.
The award is given annually to a coach who has experienced outstanding achievement and has exhibited a high standard of propriety, imagination and innovation as a character-builder in the tradition of great teacher-coaches.
Past winners of this prestigious award include Bill Belichick, Tony Dungy, Nick Saban and the late Joe Paterno.
