Addison Trail Boys Soccer Team coach named Assistant Coach of the Year

Addison Trail’s Angel Vega (pictured above) has been named as an Assistant Coach of the Year by the Illinois High School Soccer Coaches Association (IHSSCA).

Vega is one of 12 assistant coaches in Illinois to win this award, and he was recognized and honored on Oct. 16.

He has been the Assistant Varsity Coach of the Addison Trail Boys Soccer Team since 2014. During that time, he has helped Addison Trail win three Regional titles (in 2016, 2018 and 2022) and a PepsiCo Showdown tournament championship (in 2016).

“Vega continues to influence the growth of soccer in Addison,” said Ryan Dini, Addison Trail Boys Soccer Team Head Coach. “He volunteers with TOPSoccer, organizes the team’s participation in the annual Addison-Medinah Shriners Parade, runs open gyms, coaches summer league teams and gives countless hours to reviewing video on Hudl. Most importantly, Vega is driven to help players reach the next step and continue the sport at the collegiate level (more than 30 players). Vega is all about the soccer program here in Addison, and that’s what makes him one of the best coaches in Illinois.”
