The Buffalo Bills are once again proudly partnering with ADPRO Sports in 2016, to recognize some of the best high school football coaches Western New York has to offer through the High School Coach of the Week program.


The Buffalo Region Coach of the Week for Week 4 is Jeff Buccieri, head coach of the Maryvale Flyers. Maryvale took on Burgard on the road on Saturday, October 1. The Flyers fell behind early in the game and stared down a 20-0 deficit with five minutes left in the first half. Rallying late the second quarter, Maryvale scored 15 points to get back in the game. Freshman quarterback Connor Desiderio connected with junior wide out Dylan Casey for three touchdowns to lead the comeback. On defense, senior cornerback Nakeem Ubaydah came up with an interception. In the end, Maryvale defeated Burgard 28-26. Maryvale, now 5-0 on the season, is set to face Newfane on Friday, October 7.rob-cerone-athena
