ELGIN MIDDLESEX CHIEFS 2019/20 COACH OF THE YEAR
Submitted By Terry Nelson on Thursday, April 23, 2020
The Elgin Middlesex Chiefs have announced their Coach of the Year award for the 2019/20 season.   This year’s recipient is our Minor Midget coach Jason Williams.

Jason’s team finished in 1st place and went undefeated in the regular season with 25 wins, 0 losses and 8 ties.   In addition they lead the league with 147 goals scored while allowing the least against at 55.   


In playdowns they defeated Lambton, Huron Perth and then Waterloo to win the Alliance Championship Final.   They also qualified for the OHL Cup and were considered strong contenders but unfortunately because of COVID19, the tournament had to be cancelled. 

In addition, at the 2020 OHL Priority Selection Draft in April, nine players from his team were chosen.   

Coach Williams ran an exemplary hockey instructional and teaching program that greatly benefited all players involved and set a standard for development that all EMC coaches can aspire to.   His bench staff included Danny Syvret, Darren Williams and Nathan Craze.

Jason is the inaugural winner of this annual award.   His name will be the first to be inscribed on the EMC COACH OF THE YEAR plaque that will hang in the lobby at our home rink in Komoka.

Thanks and well done Jason!
