This award is in honor of 2016 NCISAA Hall of Famer, Doug Cobbs. He served the NCISAA on the Board of Directors/Board of Managers for 25 years, retiring in the summer of 2015. He was a part of the growth of the NCISAA into 3 divisions, the inclusion of 7th graders in varsity sports, and was the Sport Chair for Softball as it transitioned from slow pitch to fast pitch. Doug was willing to serve the NCISAA in any way he could as he embodied the spirit of Volunteerism. For all of his tireless efforts, the NCISAA honored Doug Cobbs and his career by naming, in 2015, its Distinguished Service Award on his behalf.
