Kostibos Named US Marines Semper Fi New Jersey Coach of The Year

February 11, 2014 at 11:03 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - Summit High School Varsity Head Football Coach Kevin Kostibos has been named the United States Marines Semper Fi New Jersey Coach of The Year.  Kostibos will be honored at the Glazier Football Coaching Clinic at the Whippany Marriott Hotel, February 15 at 8:30 a.m.  He follows Summit's John Liberato, who was honored with the award in 2013.

The award is given by the U.S. Marines Corps, and Glazier Football Clinics, to honor high school football coaches who display faithfulness to the mission of their team, and exemplify the Marine standard of excellence in developing leaders.  It recognizes a high school football coach who lives out the Marine Corps motto: Semper Fidelis ("Always Faithful"), and who models the Marine Corps leadership values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
  1. Honor to live life with integrity, responsibility, honesty, and respect.
  2. Courage displayed in mental, moral and physical strength to do what is right in the face of fear, uncertainty or intimidation.
  3. Commitment in unwavering, selfless dedication to mission accomplishment and personal and professional responsibilities.
The Semper Fi Coach is not necessarily selected for a winning record or championship title, but rather for leaving a legacy of intentional leadership.  The Semper Fi Coach is a "Maker of Leaders." 
 
Kostibos, who had served as an assistant coach under former Summit Varsity Head Coach Liberato, was named Head Coach in 2013 when Liberato made the decision to coach the Freshman Team only.  He inherited a team that had graduated 18 out of 22 starters, and led the Hilltoppers to a 12-0 record and a second-consecutive State Title.
 
"It is such an honor to bestowed appreciation for service from the men and women who protect our country.  The Marines stand for values such as courage, honor, and loyalty, to name a few.  For them to even consider myself in their category is an honor in itself," said Kostibos.  "I was given a great opportunity by John to be part of a grand tradition here at Summit six years ago, not only on the field, but also being a leader in the classroom.  I'm sure John is as happy for me to receive this award, and keep the tradition in Summit going, as I am to accept it."

When we drop off our five-year old daughter at the public school where she currently attends kindergarten in Summit, New Jersey, she and her friends all appear quite similar.

This year, on our National Day of Thanks, I would like to express my gratitude for having hands.
