With the Air Force Falcons winning their first WWPA title since 1994, they defeated UC San Diego 9-7, it is not a shock that their head coach Jeff Heidmous was named the WWPA's coach of the year. Heidmous won the award two times before, back in 1990 and 1994.
Heidmous led Air Force to a 19-10 regular season record which is the most wins by an Air Force team since 1999, and are heading to their first NCAA tournament since 1994. Plus, the Falcons are ranked 10th in the nation in the latest CWPA poll.
Ever since Heidmous took over the program three years ago he has been building up the program to this point by bringing in top notch talent to help bring the program to become one of the better teams in the nation.
Next up for Air Force is the NCAA tournament where they will take on top-seeded, and undefeated USC.
