BOISE, Idaho -
Boise State Men's Tennis Head Coach Greg Patton has been awarded the 2012 USTA Intermountain David Freed Award, which recognizes individuals for their lifetime service to tennis within the Intermountain Section.
"When they say lifetime it's a little scary because I'm only half way through," said Patton. "I am incredibly honored and grateful, especially to Boise State for giving me a platform to preach the magic and glories of tennis."
This award was first introduced in 1988 and given to David Freed of Salt Lake City, Utah. David Freed served as Intermountain's Secretary and Treasurer for 39 years from 1936-1975.
Patton will accept the award at the Intermountain Meeting in Denver, Dec. 1.
