Congratulations Coach Ray Biles!
After receiving and tallying tens of thousands of votes from across the state, we are proud to announce that Coach Ray Biles from Lorena High School is our 2013 Coach of the Year. The small town of Lorena, just outside Waco, is only 1,700 people, but that didn't stop the community from rallying huge support for Lorena High School Athletic Director, Ray Biles. Coach Biles beat out more than 300 other entrants in the My Plates Coach of the Year Contest to win the Grand Prize of $25,000 for his school, along with the 7-character personalized license plate COACH 13.
