After coaching for more than 30 years and racking up more than 1,000 wins, Seward County Head Coach Galen McSpadden has taken home his fair share of awards and has been inducted into three different Hall of Fames including the NJCAA Hall of Fame but this call was different. McSpadden, whose roots were grown in the Southern part of Missouri, received a very special call last week from Southeast Missouri State Athletic Director Mark Alnutt.
