Coach of the Year
Scott Raper, Centennial
The story: Despite it being in the Oklahoma City Public Schools system, a lot of people don't know where Raper's school is (East of Kelly Avenue on NE 101st, by the way). But he has put his basketball team on the map in a big way, coaching them to the Class 3A state championship in the school's fourth year of existence. After starting the season 1-2, the Bison won 23 of the final 25, including eight straight to close the season.
