Don't know Kevin Bergman? Here's his bio for the contest:

Coach Bergman has been with the Sumner-Fredericksburg High School girls’ basketball team since 2007. In his first year as head coach, he was voted District Coach of the Year by his peers. He has also served as head softball coach since 2005. His peers named him softball District Coach of the Year in 2012, after he lead his team to a fourth-place finish at the state tournament. Coach Bergman’s generosity extends beyond his coaching duties. In 2008, he took his softball team to clean up Parkersburg when the town suffered tragic losses in an EF5 tornado. Recently, he organized a harvest for a family stricken by cancer. In terms of the contributions to the school system, his gift of time is unrivaled. He preps the football field, organizes sports clinics and youth tournaments, supervises strength and conditioning, takes stats for football and helped establish the Cougar Betterment Foundation. Coach Bergman also funded a softball scoreboard upgrade with his own money. In 2017, he repaired flood damage baseball diamonds. Outside of his commitments at school, he operates the Bergman family farm, owns a successful seed-corn business, remains active in his church congregation and, most recently, took on a new title: grandpa.
