It'd be fair to make the argument that New Trier's Jim Burnside is one of the, if not the, greatest girls soccer coaches in IHSA girls soccer history. His now-529 career victories are rivaled by only Quincy Notre Dame's Mark Longo and his six career state titles are the most by any coach in state history.

This year Burnside led his squad to an unprecedented sixth consecutive trip downstate and for that, he was named 22nd Century Media's Coach of the Year.
