Michael Lofton has been a mentor to Caitlin Connell for numerous years.
Lofton coached Connell in middle school and when the athlete advanced to high school, her coach made the move as well. The two were recognized for their success in the cross country arena recently as Connell was named the top female runner in Northeast Georgia for 2012 while Lofton was named one of the Coaches of the Year.
“For me, I was surprised by my honor,” Lofton said. “I am a champion for our kids. I will always do what I can to get them the recognition they deserve.”
