Congratulations, Mike Collier ‘Coach of the Year’
Congratulations to Mike Collier, who recently was named Lorain County Tom Hoch Division IV-VII Coach of the Year by the Lorain County Coaches Association. Collier coached the Clearview High School football Clippers to a 9-2 season.
Collier has deep ties to Clearview, as he told the Chronicle-Telegram: “It’s extremely humbling being that I played for and coached with Coach Hoch,” Collier said. “Coach Hoch brought me in on his staff as a young coach. It means a tremendous amount. Just to look at the plaque, it’s really kind of humbling and the man I have deep respect for — and I learned quite a bit from.”
In addition, the Clippers won nine individual honors and two most-valuable player awards in the 2017 All-Lorain County football awards, along with Collier’s honors. Collier also serves as Athletic Director for the Clearview School District, and he is a member of the Lorain Sports Hall of Fame Committee.
