In sports, the conventional wisdom is that it's impossible to follow a legend. Someone forgot to tell Coach Gavin Cree. Eleven years ago, Coach Cree was named the successor to Hall-of-Fame coach Ed Pepple, for whom he played (and won a state title). All he's done since is win five KingCo Coach of the Year awards. The fifth came for the 2019-2020 season, as Coach Cree was honored for the Islanders' undefeated league season. Nice work (again), Coach - the Island is lucky to have you.
