The 58-year-old has owned or operated more than a dozen pro shops during his career in the bowling industry, and he is an International Bowling Pro Shop and Instructors Association (IBPSIA) Master Instructor.
Competitively, Somoff earned two Professional Bowlers Association regional titles during a PBA career that spanned from 1982-2003.
”I’m honored for this distinctive and unique award, and I would like to thank my family at Storm, my friends in the industry and my loved ones for their support,” Somoff said. ”In earning this recognition, I feel a great responsibility to not only teach the lessons that have been learned through research and experience, but also be aware and forge ahead in learning, openly working with other coaches globally and teaching the latest information in this ever-changing sport. I am very grateful for this opportunity.”
