What a first day back from Thanksgiving vacation at Foxcroft Academy. A big pep rally to honor soccer and wrestling coach Luis Ayala for being named the National MVP Coach Award winner.

It comes with a $50,000 check for the school from U.S. Cellular who is the sponsor of the award program.

Ayala was the top vote-getter from the list of 50 coaches down to the final 15.

Then a special panel selected Ayala as the overall winner.

Check out some of the pep rally...
