Southmoore football coach Jeff Brickman has been selected to receive the Semper Fidelis Coaching Award from the U.S. Marine Corps, in conjunction with the Glazier Football Clinics.
The award is given annually to high school football coaches who exemplify the Marines’ standard of excellence, which constitutes integrity, responsibility, honesty, honor, courage, and commitment.
Brickman is being honored for his dedication to his football players and his school community in providing aid to them after the May 20, 2013, tornado.
Brickman led a campaign to help those in need by working for several weeks, raising more than $90,000 in cash and gift cards, which went to benefit the 22 Southmoore football players who lost their homes, as well as 88 other families that suffered losses from the tornado.
Brickman will be recognized at the Glazier Football Clinic Friday in Tulsa.
