(NEWS CENTER) -- $50,000 is on its way to Dover-Foxcroft thanks to a local coach's outstanding abilities.

Luis Ayala was named US Cellular's Most Valuable Coach of the Year thanks to a combination of community votes and approval from a panel of judges.

Coach Ayala has been a soccer and wrestling coach at Foxcroft Academy for 18 years.

Ayala will receive a check for 50-grand next Monday, and says he plans to give "every penny" to the Foxcroft Academy athletic department.
