Riggers Rookie Coach named CJHL Coach of the Year
One of the architects behind the turnaround season for the Leduc Riggers is being recognized by his peers.
Head Coach Carter Huebner has been named the CJHL Coach of the Year for the 2018/19 season.
Huebner Breck Clark and Parker Thomas are all former Rigger players.
Speaking to The One News Huebner says they couldn't have had the success they've had without the work of his assistants, Breck Clark, and Parker Thomas.
"It's nice because you know I'll try and be watching the overall game but they're paying more attention to individual players, what they're doing and kind of providing their insight back to me which helps out aloud and allows me to build an overall game plan for the team," says Huebner.
In his rookie season behind the bench, the Riggers amassed 10 more wins than the previous season and 22 more points.
The award is voted on by other coaches in the CJHL. (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
