Kevin Donovan
Kevin Donovan , Coach

School: Baylor

Coach, In his first season at the helm of the Baylor tennis program, Donovan got his players to "Believe in the 'B,'" a reference to the school logo. The Red Raiders ended up Division II-AA state runners-up despite losing Ethan Burgan and Ryan Toomey for portions of the spring, with Toomey out for the final month of the season because of an injury. In addition to the team's achievement, Brandon Kali won a state title in singles, while Hunter Smith and Benjamin Taverne were the doubles champions. "I'm so blessed to be a part of this program," Donovan said while thanking his wife and five kids for "their sacrifices." "I give God all the credit. The kids are phenomenal, and the coaching staff came together. Down the stretch we all came together; it was just the last couple of inches in the final that we couldn't put together, but I'm 100 percent blessed to be a part of it. I was just a cheerleader. The entire coaching staff gave everything we had until the final match was decided. I don't know if I could ask for anything more than that." Donovan also helped lead Baylor's girls to their eighth consecutive team state title.
