Scott Trumbauer's pride for Parkland volleyball runs deep. A four-year player in the '90s for the Trojans and the boys head coach for the past 20 years, Trumbauer is aspassionate as anyone surrounding highschool athletics.

Trumbauer has been a part of some tremendous highs in Parkland boysvolleyball history.

In fact, he's been involved as a player or a coach in all 10 of the program's district championships. The most recent coming last month when the Trojans made their way to the top ofthe area standings.

For his consistent success and unwavering commitment, Trumbauer is the Morning Call Boys Volleyball Coach of the Year.

When hired in 2001, Trumbauerwas 22 years old and had just graduated from Susquehanna University. Today he has upheld a winning culture at
Parkland would be an understatement.

"I played at Parkland for four yearsunder head coach Will Robertson. And while I was in college, I would help head coach Jim Hauser whenever I was home from school and available." Trumbauer said.

"Once I applied for and was offered the head coaching position, I just wanted to continue the success that the coaches before me had achieved. I would have never imagined being here 20 years later and having accomplished the things we have. Seeing a player, manager, and assistant coach receive their gold medal from a league, district or state championship is the greatest feeling as a head coach."

The Trojans finished this season with a record of 21-3, pushing Trumbauer's career win total to 314.

"This season was the program's 10th district title, all of which I have been able to be involved with as a playeror coach, but every one of them has meant the world to me in their own way. Knowing that the banners in the Parkland gym will be there forever continues to provide our program with a clear goal every year," Trumbauer said.
