Scott Bauer, coach at Allegany High School, was named 1st runner up in the Maryland Humanities Council Coach of the Community contest, second only to Lionel Makell of Anne Arundel Community College.
The Coach of the Community contest was a highlight of the Allegany Museum’s Smithsonian Hometown Teams exhibition, held last summer.
Cameron Bratton, a member of the Allegany Campers ball team, nominated Coach Bauer for his positive influence on the lives of the team members.
For winning the local contest, Coach Bauer received a plaque and 25 t-shirts for his team. The statewide winner, coach Makell, won tickets to the 2015 Army-Navy game in Philadelphia, but declined the tickets, and the tickets were then awarded to Coach Bauer.
