GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Upstate volunteer coach received Subway’s very first Standout Coach Award on Sunday.

Coach Zach Southerland received the award for his outstanding leadership, sportsmanship, community spirit and dedication to health and fitness in the Upstate.

Coach Southerland has been coaching youth sports teams in the Upstate for about 12 years. He is currently helping coach the Greenville Little League Majors Division All Stars to play in the state tournament. Most recently, he led the GLL National Team to a victorious season with 11 wins and one loss.

Parents of players who nominated Coach Southerland said: “Zach is a great example of positive coaching… He is loving and caring. He knows how to redirect the boys without being mean and harsh. The boys and parents love him… He is sincere in his approach and knows the game of baseball.”

Southerland works full time in his own medical supplies business. He was selected from more than 100 volunteer coaches in the Upstate for the award.

On Sunday, Subway presented Southerland a whistle, clipboard and $100 Subway® Card, along with $250 in Subway® catering for his team.

Congratulations to you, Coach Southerland!
