Coach Mack guided the team to its fourth NCCAA East Region Championship under his leadership and fifth consecutive 20-win season.

The VFCC Patriots completed the season with a 26-8 overall record, garnering more wins than any other NCCAA Division II team in the country.

Due to the Patriots’ solid performance during the regular season and conference play-offs, the team earned the number one seed entering the 2012 National Tournament. Prior to nationals, the Patriots were 15-2 againstNCCAA opponents, with their only two losses coming against eventual national champions, Grace Bible College. The Patriots were undefeated in East Region play. Throughout the regular season, the Patriots played in many other inter-region games against some of the top teams around the nation. Several of those teams earned championships in their respective conferences.

In March 2012, Coach Mack’s peers acknowledged his success by naming him National Coach of the Year.

Despite not winning the NCCAA National Championship, Coach Mack continues to express pride in his team’s performance. He coached a team that faced challenges all season long and could have folded several times. However, the core of the team remained strong and never gave up.

Coach Mack has now earned his seventh East Region Coach of the Year and third National Coach of the Year awards.
