Cardinal Stritch’s Ty Stacey Honored With Aspiring Coach Award

MILWAUKEE, Wis.—Ty Stacey, a team manager with the Cardinal Stritch University (Wis.) men’s basketball team, was honored this week with Winning Hoops’ first Aspiring Coach Award, recognizing his passion for becoming a leader both on and off the court.

Stacey was an important motivator and contributor to a Wolves team that won its first Division II national championship this year. As the team manager, Stacey assists coach Drew Diener with various responsibilities during practices and games. He hopes to one day use that experience as a springboard to a coaching job of his own.

Stacey has spastic cerebral palsy, limiting him to a scooter while he’s with the team. That’s never dampened his spirits or forced him to give up on his dream of coaching basketball. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in February published a story about Stacey, illustrating his love for the game and his role with the university’s basketball team.

The Aspiring Coach Award recognizes individuals with a commitment to learning about the game of basketball and whose efforts and enthusiasm have become of model of success. This award celebrates those who have demonstrated an outstanding attitude and work ethic as they pursue a career in coaching basketball.

Stacey was presented with the award March 16 during the program’s banquet. He also received a copy of every book, report and issue that Winning Hoops has ever published.

If you would like to nominate the next recipient of the Aspiring Coach Award, please send your name, contact info, name of the candidate and a detailed description of why they deserve this award to Kevin Hoffman at [email protected].
