F. Morris Touchstone Award

The F. Morris Touchstone Award is an award given by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association to the nation's most outstanding NCAA Division I lacrosse head coach. The award was first presented in 1958.[1]

The award is named after F. Morris Touchstone who was head coach at the United States Military Academy from 1928 to 1957. While at Army, his teams had a record of 214-73-4. Of Army's 82 first-team All-Americans, 42 played under Touchstone.[2] and won the national championship in 1944, 1945 (co-winner with Navy), and 1951 (co-winner with Princeton). Touchstone was inducted in the U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1960.[3]
