Wylie's Hugh Sandifer honored by UIL
Wylie Athletic Director and football coach Hugh Sandifer was honored by the UIL on Wednesday.
A panel of superintendents and principals across the state chose Sandifer as one of 15 honorees of the Sponsor Excellence Award.
The award was created to recognize outstanding sponsors who enable students to develop and refine their extracurricular talents to the highest degree within the education system.
Sandifer, who's career spans 38 years, has won 10 UIL state champion teams as an athletic director, including that 2004 state football championship as head coach.
As an award winner, each will receive $1,000 and a symbolic memento from the UIL in recognition of their outstanding achievements in the pursuit of educational excellence through interscholastic competition.
