Over his career, Coach Paul Hogan has received numerous awards including the USCAA Athletic Director of the Year in 2014, Plymouth State University Hall of Fame in 2007, Walter Smith Coaches Award in 2010 and the James Desmarais Award in 2018. His career legacy includes 649 wins, 2 USCAA national championships, 1 USCAA national runner-up, 5 YSCC Tourney championships, 5 YSCC Tourney runners-up and 6 YSCC regular season championships. In 2020, he was inducted into the NHTI Athletics Hall of Fame.

“Paul has been and will continue to be a pillar in the community, certainly the state of NH and beyond”, said Coach Deb Smith also Director of Recreation and Wellness at NHTI. “He has positively influenced the lives of thousands. Working alongside him for the past 23 years I can honestly say he has been an incredible mentor and made a profound difference in my life and countless others. His endless support, hard work and great sense of humor made him a friend to students, alumni, peers, coaches, officials and administration. He will be greatly missed by the NHTI community. He deserves to retire after an incredible 43- year run. He would want us all to continue making a difference in the lives of our students, sports and each other.  He will certainly be missed; however, his legacy will live on forever.
