COTTONWOOD Pirates football head coach Ryan Hasselstrom received the 1AD1 football coaches “Coach of the Year” award and moved to share credit among others who helped the Prairie boys win a football state title last fall.
"We are extremely grateful for this award,” Hasselstrom told the Free Press Feb. 1. “It really goes to the entire coaching staff, Teel Bruner & Matt Elven and to our players. Each and every person put in a lot of hard work throughout the past season and it paid great dividends for us as a team. We work hard every year to make our football team something to be proud of and this year was no exception."
