Packers seeking nominations for high school coach of the week program
GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers High School Coach of the Week Program is now underway.
The team is currently accepting nominations from high schools across the state, regardless of whether the high school team is playing this fall or next spring.
The program recognizes one outstanding Wisconsin high school coach weekly during the next several months.
Each honoree will be awarded several items and privileges, including a $1,000 donation to the school’s football program from the Packers and the NFL and recognition on Packers.com, WisSports.net and Wifca.org.
Nominees could be honored for how they have turned their programs around, how the team has impacted the community or how the coach impacts the players and their families.
At the end of the season, one coach will be named the coach of the year, selected by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association, and will be given a $2,000 donation for his or her football program.
“We’re proud to recognize the hard work of high school football coaches with the Packers Coach of the Week program,” said Packers football outreach specialist Ryan Fencl. “As educators, mentors and leaders, both on and off the field, they serve as positive examples for young people in the community and allow them to learn and grow.”
Nominations can be submitted by 10 a.m. every Monday to Fencl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All nominations should include the nominee’s name, address, school, phone number and the reason he/she is deserving of the award.
