It was quite a week for Burlington Catholic Central (Burlington, Wisconsin) baseball coach Tom O'Connell.

First, O'Connell, who has coached baseball at the high school level for over 40 years, was named the National High School Coaches Association's 2011 Baseball Coach of the Year. Then on Thursday, O'Connell's team went-out and won the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Division 4 state baseball championship.

Sunday, O'Connell will be a guest on the NHSCA Sports Hour to talk about the Hilltoppers' back-to-back championships and fifth state title in the last eight years.
