COOPERSTOWN – County Judge John Lambert, who is also longtime assistant varsity basketball coach at Cooperstown Central School, has won this year’s Fetterman Award.
The Fetterman Award is presented annually by the Clark Sports Center, recognizing service to youth in the field of athletics. Such Cooperstown legends as Beanie Ainslie, Ted Kantorowski, Don Howard and Dick White have won it, as did Lambert’s father Paul, the retired superintendent who passed away in January.
In addition to coaching, Lambert was also a standout CCS basketball player during his high school career.
The award will be presented at a luncheon Oct. 11 at The Otesaga.
