Duncanville Pantherettes coach Cathy Self-Morgan is one of two coaches chosen this year to receive the national Gatorade Coaching Excellence Award.
"Coach Self-Morgan exemplifies what we look for when we select the Gatorade Coaching Excellence Award winners - she is dedicated, selfless and a true inspiration to her team," Gatorade spokesman Jeff Kearney said in an email.
Self-Morgan will be honored at the 15th annual Gatorade Athlete of the Year Awards.
She will have the opportunity to walk the red carpet at the ESPY Awards in July in Los Angeles.
This honor caps a season where the Pantherettes won back-to-back State Championship titles and Coach Self-Morgan marked her 1,100th career win.
