Neil Holloway named executive of the year; club also recognized for excellence in communications
For the third year in a row, the Ocean City Barons have been honored by the United Soccer Leagues at the league’s annual general meeting. At the year-end awards banquet, the Barons brought home two awards. General Manager Neil Holloway, who also contributed to the team as a player, was recognized for his work off the field by being named the 2007 Premier Development League (PDL) Executive of the Year. In addition, the club also won the PDL Communications award.

"It was a nice surprise and a great honor to be recognized out of all 63 franchises at the PDL level," said Holloway. "When you receive awards as a player, you tend to thank your teammates, in this case I have to recognize the team of people I have off the field for allowing me to steer the Ocean City Barons in my direction and lead them toward my vision of success."
