The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has honored Valley City State University coach Cory Anderson as the 2005 Region III Coach of Character award winner.

Anderson, in his 14th year at VCSU, is the inaugural recipient of the award. Part of the NAIA Champions of Character Program, the Coach of Character program honors coaches who have made an impact on student-athletes, universities and communities. The five core values of the program include respect, responsibility, integrity, servant leadership and sportsmanship.

"Coach Anderson exemplifies all of the core values in all that he does," said Doug Peters VCSU Athletic Director. "His work and involvement on our campus, in the DAC-10, and in the Valley City Community is phenomenal."

Currently Coach Anderson is the head baseball coach, offensive coordinator for the football team, Sports Information Director, active on the marketing committee, coordinator of the Viking Golf Scramble, and the baseball chairman for the DAC-10 Conference and Region III. Off campus, Anderson is involved in Valley City youth sports programs and active in his church.
