I am honored to nominate Jim Brown
for Coach of the Year.
Jim Brown has been a member of USA Powerlifting since 1986.
is an outstanding lifter.
He is a 14- time ADFPA/USAPL Pennsylvania State Champion -- The most state titles by any member in Pennsylvania.
is also a 3-time IPF/NAPF North American Champion and finished 4th at the 2008 IPF World Masters Powerlifting Championship, 1st at the IPF Pan-American Championships, 10th at the 2009 IPF Men's Open World Championships and 1st at the 2010 National Masters Championships.
Not only is Jim a very good lifter, he is also an excellent coach as well!
has coached the USA Women's Team at the IPF/NAPF North American Championships the past three consecutive years.
Despite the many accolades, Jim
remains a most humble and approachable person, who will take time to share his
knowledge with others in the sport of Powerlifting - the sign of a very good coach.
On a final note, it goes without saying that Brother Bennett, the founder of the ADFPA/USAPL
, who had the vision and foresight to establish an organization that specifically focused on the concept of "drug-free powerlifting" with an emphasis of Mens Sana in Corpore Sana - A Sound Mind in a Sound Body, which has now moved from a national phenomenon, to an international standard for all sports to measure themselves against, would be most honored and proud of Jim Brown
receiving this award!
