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 underway, and the team is currently accepting nominations from high schools across the state.
The program recognizes one Wisconsin high school coach every week during the 2021 high school football season.
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.
Continuing with last year’s format, the Packers are seeking coaches to be nominated regardless of their teams’ on-field performance.
Rather, the nominee could be honored for how they have turned 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 WFCA/Green Bay Packers High School Football Coach of the Year, selected by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association, and will receive 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,” Packers football outreach specialist Ryan Fencl said. “As educators, mentors and leaders, both on and off the field, they serve as positive examples for young people in the community and give them the opportunity to learn and grow.”
Nominations can be submitted by 10 a.m. every Monday to Ryan Fencl, Packers football outreach specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All nominations should include the nominee’s name, address, school, phone number and reason he/she is deserving of the award.
