Warren named state’s 5A baseball coach of year


Former Jesuit High baseball coach Richie Warren was named the Florida Dairy Farmers Class 5A coach of the year after leading the Tigers to a state title.

Warren, who left Jesuit last week and became the head coach at Berkeley Prep, led the Tigers to a 25-6 record, including a 5-2 win against Green Cove Springs Clay in the 5A final on May 22.

“I wasn’t expecting this, but it’s a nice gift,” Warren said. “You don’t win coach of the year without having a team of the year, so I think this is great recognition for the team and the great coaches who helped us this season.”
