CCC men’s basketball coach John Ritzdorf has been named to this year’s Under Armour 30-Under-30 Team. 

The honor recognizes the nation’s outstanding men’s college basketball coaches under the age of 30. 

Ritzdorf is the only community college coach to make the team, which is chosen by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.  He’s also only one of five head coaches on the squad.

In his first season as Central’s head coach, Ritzdorf led the Raiders to a 20-11 record and a Region IX title.  Since the season ended, he earned regional and conference coach of the year honors.
