Coach Kelly, aka Lance Kelly, won a pretty impressive award last week.

The football coach of the Pee Wee Foothills Eagles won Pee Wee Coach of the Year by Alberta Football.

Kelly's been coaching in the Okotoks and Foothills region for many years now.

"It's definitely an honour to be recognized for your contributions based on football in Alberta and locally within the Eagles program and the Falcons program and football in general."

The very humble coach says it's about the people involved in the sport that make the award special.

"It's the people. You know the reason I go back is for the folks that I get to work with. I get to stand on the shoulders of giants. I've had some really exceptional mentors. Okotoks is filled with fantastic, successful football coaches. I've learned so much and developed such fantastic relationships with these people who are just people of great character."
