Phoenix Suns Charities is now accepting nominations for the “Spirit of Cotton Award,” an annual recognition that honors legendary former Suns head coach Cotton Fitzsimmons by highlighting an outstanding Arizona high school basketball coach for their leadership, dedication and service to the community in helping guide and mentor student-athletes.

The winner will receive a $10,000 grant for use in the school’s athletic program.

Nominations are due by March 15, 2019 and the winner will be recognized during a special on-court presentation alongside JoAnn Fitzsimmons, wife of Cotton Fitzsimmons, when the Suns host the New Orleans Pelicans on April 5.
