In 1976, he was named Baseball Coach of the Year by the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association. He has been inducted into the Texas High School Base ball Coaches Association Hall of Fame and the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame. The Robert C. Zamora Middle School was officially dedicated in October.
