Coach of Year award named after Bill Tarbox

In a neat twist, the Eagle-Tribune Boys Soccer Coach of the Year award is being named after Bill Tarbox the same year his son, Fred, is being named our Coach of the Year in girls soccer.

And his assistant coach? Dad.

Bill carved out a legendary career at Greater Lawrence Tech and then North Andover before stepping down after the fall 2012 season. In 40 years he went 423-206-87, smashing the area standard for wins.
