Coach Greg Patton’s collegiate coaching career spanned 41 years at UC Santa Barbara, UC Irvine and Boise State University. He retired as the winningest active collegiate coach with 808 victories which placed him fourth in the history of collegiate tennis.

2020 Excellence in Leadership Award Recipient
Jack Dunn is a sports legend in Oregon! His leadership in baseball paved the way for several youth baseball players across the Portland area and the state of Oregon. Jack’s leadership was not just about baseball, it was about teaching his players values, strong character and becoming contributing citizens in their communities as they grew up.
My coach said, ‘Take what I give you, improve on it and pass it on,’ (Clopton). We are thrilled to recognize Jack Dunn as our 2020 PCA Excellence in Leadership Award Winner.
2020 Community Impact Award Recipient
The Maurice Lucas Foundation is receiving the PCA-Portland 2020 Community Impact Award for their service to the Portland community and using sports as a vehicle for youth development.
The foundation's primary mission is to empower youth to learn, grow and achieve through positive sport activities. The foundation provides opportunities around the Portland area where activities don’t readily exist. Maurie was passionate about giving back to his community and he lived that out every day.
We are honored to recognize the Maurice Lucas Foundation for their continued contributions to Portland’s youth and the development of character through positive sport-based activities.
