Jeff Collins, Head Coach of the Panola College Rodeo Team, has been selected as the Southern Region Rodeo Coach of the Year. He was selected by his fellow coaches in the Southern Region. Collins, in his third year at Panola College, has had team members advance to the College National Finals Rodeo each year. This June, two Panola team members will represent the Southern Region in Casper, Wyoming at the CNFR.

“It’s a very humbling experience to be awarded this because there are so many great coaches across the Southern Region that work everyday to help their students achieve success in the arena and out,” Coach Collins said.

“Coach Collins has been a great asset to Panola College. He is a great mentor to his student athletes, and works everyday with a lot of integrity. We are excited for him with this honor,” said Don Clinton, Athletic Director and Vice President of Student Services at Panola College.
