"I certainly don't coach for any individual honors as I am just concerned with team success," said Maxwell. "At the same time it is an honor to be recognized. I thank my coaching staff and players for putting me in the position to have the success that we had. I would trade this though for two more points in the state final game."

Maxwell also serves as the Girls Volleyball Coach at Southern. The girls program is also one of the top programs in New Jersey.
