Magnolia High School boys basketball coach Dave Tallman was named the OVAC Bill Van Horne Coach of the Year on Monday night during the 30th annual Banquet of Champions at WesBanco Arena.
Tallman led his Blue Eagles to the Class A state championship in March with 51-46 victory over Wheeling Central in Charleston. It was the third victory, in four tries, over the Maroon Knights last season. Magnolia also won the OVAC Class 3A crown in February.
Tallman, in his 24 seasons as head coach, has won over 300 games.
