Packers seeking nominations for High School Coach of the Week Program

Posted Sep 13, 2013

Program awards $1,000 to high school football programs each week

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 outstanding Wisconsin high school coach each week during the 2013 high school football season. Winners are awarded several items and privileges, including a $1,000 donation to the school's football program from the Green Bay Packers and the NFL.

In addition to the $1,000 donation for each school’s football program, the winning coach will receive recognition on, and, and will be mentioned in the Packers Gameday program.

At the end of the season, one coach is named the WFCA/Green Bay Packers High School Football Coach of the Year, selected by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association, and is given a $2,000 donation for his football program. The coach of the year will also be recognized at Lambeau Field during one of the Packers’ final home games.

“The Packers Coach of the Week program recognizes the hard work coaches put in as educators and mentors on and off the field,” said Packers youth football coordinator Tim Schroeder. “Their impact in the community is substantial and is reflected in the nominations we receive each week.”

Nominations can be submitted by 10 a.m. every Monday to Tim Schroeder, Packers youth football coordinator, at or by fax at (920) 569-7302. All nominations should include the nominee's name, address, school, phone number and reason he/she is deserving of the award.
