Parkview High School’s Baseball coach, Chad Brown, is being honored with GDC’s Ethics Coaching Award.
On October 14th, the Georgia Dugout Club announced that Coach Chan Brown would be honored at their annual Coaches Clinic. This is not his first recognition from GDC, as Coach Brown was previously inducted into the GDC Hall of Fame on January 13th, 2018.
Chan Brown has been recognized many times for his success on the field, but his leadership off the field made him an easy choice for this award. He is a man of strong principles. Many times, coaches talk about doing it right, and Coach Brown has done it right from the beginning.
– Greg Frady (GDC Ethics in Coaching Committee)
The GDC Coaches Clinic was originally set to take place on December 11, 2020, at Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center. Due to the pandemic, the annual event was canceled.
In its place, the GDC has scheduled a virtual presentation of their Hall of Fame, inaugural Legacy Awards, and Ethics in Coaching Award ceremony for Sunday, January 10, 2021 at 6 p.m.
