There is a reason why North Broward’s Prep’s John Garrish was the National Strength Coach of the Year in 2022. 

For all his work for his student-athletes at NBP,  the coach hosted what he called the biggest and most important event of his career on Oct. 15, called South Florida Speed School for kids of all ages, in honor of his older sister. 

The money raised was donated to the Nicole Marie Garrish foundation. Nicole was his older sister who passed away in 2012 due to an aortic aneurysm, a fatal heart condition.

The foundation raises money each year for scholarships given to local students attending college in the fall. 

“One of my goals for a while for this particular training was collaborating with some coaches that I regard highly,” said John. “Along with Coach Theron Allen Jr. from Goldfeet and NBP coaches Noah Rosado and Nick Bernal, we were able to hold a terrific event.”

He plans on holding several more events throughout the year including one this Sunday at North Broward Prep at 9 a.m.
