Cinnaminson's Mario Patrizi was named coach of the year Monday night at the 73rd annual Brooks-Irvine Memorial Football Club banquet.

Patrizi led Cinnaminson to an 8-3 record and a share of the West Jersey Football League Liberty Division title.

As the No. 7 seed in the South Jersey Group 2 tournament, Cinnaminson upset No. 2 seed Camden at Farnham Park in the first round before falling to eventual champion Haddonfield in the sectional semifinals.

Patrizi, a Camden Catholic graduate, has a 75-48 record in 12 seasons at Cinnaminson. His teams are 40-12 since 2013, with records of 8-2, 9-2, 8-2, 7-3 and 8-3.
