Local basketball coach honored by One Good Deed Michiana


A big surprise Sunday at Niles High School.  The girls basketball team held an alumni game and right before tip off, they honored their coach.

One Good Deed Michiana, a non profit started by former FOX28's sports anchor Allison Hayes, recognized the coach's impact on his team.

The girls nominated their coach for this honor saying he had given them all so much hope, and the understanding of responsibility.  The team also said Coach Patrick Touhey was not only a coach but a mentor, father figure, disciplinarian, and a friend.

Touhey told FOX28 he was completely shocked by this honor,  "There's not a million dollars that could make you feel like how I felt today.  Those kids just gave me much more than a million dollars," said Touhey.

As part of the honor, Coach Touhey also received some free goodies including a Brian Kelly autographed football.
