The M Association will honor S. Scott Mannering ’79 as its 2008 Claude Wolfe Coach of the Year at Homecoming on Oct.11.
Mannering has served 22 years as head coach of varsity football at Lewis Cass High School in Walton, Ind., where his Class 2A Kings finished 54-8 over the last five seasons, with two semi-state appearances. In 2006, the Indianapolis Colts recognized Mannering as its Colts/NFL Coach of the Week among Indiana high school football coaches.
Coach Mannering’s 156-78 career has four sectional and three regional titles. At Lewis Cass, he also coaches junior high wrestling, varsity boys track and advises the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. His teaching roster includes weight training, junior high health and junior high physical education.
Before joining Lewis Cass, Mannering held assistant coaching positions at Knox and Marion high schools and as a graduate assistant for Ball State University, where he earned a master’s degree in physical education. (He played Spartan football, while majoring in physical education.) He and wife Lisa Whitmyre ’80 Mannering reside in Walton. They have three children, Clayton, Rory and Megan.
The Claude Wolfe Coach of the Year demonstrates competitive excellence while mirroring the values of Claude Wolfe ’41, who coached Manchester College teams for 25 years. For more about the M Association, and to nominate a coach for the Claude Wolfe honor, click here.
