Coach Ledford wins the 2006 Harvey D.   
Karsevar Coach of the Year Award from
the Raleigh Parks & Recreation Dept.

The following is the application text submitted by
Cindy Williams from Raleigh's Laurel Hills
Community Center:

Don Ledford began coaching with the Raleigh
Parks and Recreation Department in the fall of 2002
at Jaycee Community Center.  He may have been
influenced somewhat by his father who caoched at
Millbrook Exchange Park for many years.  I met Don
the following year when the City adopted a District
system for athletics and I was responsible for the
Little League age group that Don coaches.

Don has an extensive knowledge of the sport of
basketball, but more importantly, he has a love for
children and is able to help in their development
through sports.  He also is an advocate for our
department's philosophy regarding youth in sports.   
He always tries to do what is best for the athlete and
the team, while also developing in the player a
balance of competitiveness and sportsmanship.  I
am particularly impressed by his sense of fairness
and his dedication to our mission of providing a
positive athletic experience.
