THE 2019 AWARD

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- Norfolk State coach Robert Jones is the 2018-19 recipient of the Skip Prosser Man of the Year award.

Jones guided the Spartans to a 22-14 record and the MEAC regular season title this season. Norfolk State’s 14-2 conference record was the program’s best since 2012-13 and marked the sixth consecutive season with at least 11 conference victories.

The Spartans have a 109-96 record during Jones’ six seasons at the helm. Norfolk State, which lost to N.C. Central in the MEAC tournament title game, also throttled a top 80 East Tennessee squad 89-61 on Dec. 22nd.

Named after the late Skip Prosser, who died suddenly in 2007 while the head coach at Wake Forest, the award is presented annually to those who not only achieve success on the basketball court but who also display moral integrity off of it as well.

Prosser posted a career record of 291-146 in 14 seasons as a head coach at Loyola, Xavier and Wake Forest.
