Prep Talk Coach of the Year: Chris Durr, Williamsville East

Williamsville East's Chris Durr was named the Prep Talk Coach of the Year at the Prep Talk Awards Wednesday night.

Durr coached three sports - girls soccer, girls basketball and softball - once again during the 2016-17 school year. Two of them had great seasons.

The soccer team lost in the Section VI Class A-1 final to Grand Island in the fall, while the softball team made to the championship game of the NYSPHSAA Class A playoffs in the spring.

"This is such an honor," Durr said. "I didn't expect this at all. It's a tribute to the wonderful school I teach at and the wonderful athletes and families that we have. I'm very humbled and honored.

"I'd like to thank The Buffalo News, Prep Talk Awards and also congratulate all the other nominees for coach of the year."
