June 23, 2016 // Posted By Janie Rohlfing. Ron Cox was recently named U.S. Army High School Coach of the Month during a June 21 presentation by local service members from the US Army Second Airborne Unit. Mr. Cox is a volunteer coach who also works as the Lees Summit R-7 School Districts director of purchasing and distribution. A Lees Summit resident, Mr. Cox was recognized for his development of high-school players both on and off the field. His team, Sporting Lees Summit SC U17, had an outstanding season going 29-2-4 and capturing the USA Cup National Championship. Mr. Cox and his two assistant coaches, Brian Young and Justin Lee, focus on recruiting and developing exceptional players with high character who perform in the classroom as well. The team maintained an overall grade-point average of 3.0 or greater this school year. Many of the players on the U17 team not only won All State, All District or All Conference awards, they were also on the honor roll both semesters. When asked about the award Mr. Cox said that he was "very humbled and proud to accept this award. This is a team award, not meant for one individual. The boys work extremely hard on and off the field, and they deserve all the credit. Ive always had a special place in my heart for the US Army and all they do for us and my family, especially after losing my nephew in Afghanistan fighting alongside his team of US Army 10th Mountain soldiers."
