Tim Rhyan, Deer Valley High School’s veteran Athletic Director will garner top honors from California Coaches Association (CCA) this year when he will receive an Athletic Director of the Year award at its June 11 awards dinner in Sacramento.

Rhyan was selected from Athletic Directors throughout the state for his professional contribution of time, service and dedication to his profession and athletics.

For the past 12 years he has led Deer Valley High School’s Athletic Department where under his unique leadership one-third of its student body participates in athletics.

Rhyan’s emphasis on both academics and athletics equals success for not only him, but also the school’s varsity teams who won half of all the Bay Valley Athletic League Championships in 2009-10. Among his contributions that set him apart are his authorship and implementation of multiple sports policy guides for the Antioch School District. He has also served as site director for numerous North Coast Section events, and sits on the North Coast Section Eligibility Committee.

A Pleasant Hill native, Rhyan, 65, is a graduate of College Park High School where he was an all-league player who received a full scholarship to Utah State University where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree.
