Coach Pat Collins

The award is well deserved, in a number of ways.

Collins is in his 16th year as head coach at Montague. His Wildcats won state championships in 2008 and 2009, and were state runners-up in 2006, 2007 and last season, when they lost to Jackson Lumen Christi in the Division 6 state finals.

Under Collins, Montague has won five West Michigan Conference titles, 10 district championships and six regional titles. His career record is 138-42.

Montague continued its winning ways in its season opener last weekend, thumping Reed City 42-0. The Wildcats lost their season opener to the Coyotes last season.
