CASEY COSGROVE AWARD OF COACHING EXCELLENCE
Submitted By Kyle Mundell on Wednesday, July 22, 2020
The Burlington Eagles would like to extend our congratulations to Mike Gilmore for winning the 2019-20 Casey Cosgrove Award of Coaching Excellence! Mike has been a volunteer with the Eagles for six seasons now, and this year was our Peewee (U13) A Gold head coach.

The U13 A Gold Eagles had a tremendous year, finishing the regular season tied for first place with 43 points after 28 games, as well as a goals for percentage of 0.745%. During the regular season they also won two different tournaments, one in Kingston where they won all six of their games while outscoring their opponents 20-6, and they also won a Silver Stick Regional Qualifier which saw them win the final against the only team that had beat them previously that weekend in Stoney Creek, with a convincing 6-1 victory.

Mike’s Eagles also had a successful playoff run, winning their group stage handily before beating Guelph in three straight games. In the quarter-finals the Eagles dispatched of Woolwich in 4 games, before running into the same St. Thomas team that defeated in the semi-finals the year before. Unfortunately the same fate fell on the Eagles and they bowed out to St. Thomas in three straight games in their semi-final appearance.

Mike has also proved that he can develop players, seeing 6 of his 17 players from the equally successful 2018-19 season move up to AA teams. He then took four players that moved up from the year before, and still put together a great team and a great season. Mike also had some great help from his assistant coaches Jeff Bent and Jim Moore, as well as the trainer Chris Jackson and manager Rick Barreto.

Congratulations on a tremendous season Mike and we are extremely proud to award you the Casey Cosgrove Award of Coaching Excellence for the 2019-20 season!
