It's been quite a year for Broomfield soccer's Jim Davidson. The longtime coach led the girls to a runner-up finish in Class 5A in the spring, then led the boys to a second-straight 5A title in the fall.

This fall, he notched his 300th career win on the boys side. After winning the boys championship, he was named the 5A coach of the year.

On Wednesday, Davidson added another prestigious honor: He was named the national boys large school coach of the year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of American (NSCAA). Davidson was also a finalist for the girls award as the Spring Mountain West region coach of the year.

"I can't tell you how humbled I am by the recognition," Davidson said on Thursday.

Davidson will be honored at the NSCAA Awards Banquet in Baltimore on Jan. 15.

Davidson is now 307-37-23 in his career with the boys, including six state titles, and 254-34-12 with the girls, which includes one championship.
