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 6 is Glenn Graham, head coach of the Cleveland Hill Golden Eagles. On Saturday, October 8, the Golden Eagles took on the Medina/Webber Mustangs at home. Coming into the contest, Cleveland Hill of Class C was ranked 10th in New York State and Medina/Webber of Class B was ranked 14th in the state. The matchup proved to be a low scoring defensive battle with Cleveland Hill coming out on top with a final score of 8-6. Leading the way for the Golden Eagles on defense were senior defensive lineman Nathan Pawlowski and junior defensive end Manny Al-Hemyari, who were each credited with two sacks on the game. On offense, senior quarterback Tyler Phillips put up 63 yards rushing and a touchdown. Cleveland Hill’s next game is set for Saturday, October 15 at Kennedy High School.


The Rochester Region Coach of the Week for Week 6 is Joe Marchand, head coach of CG Finney high school Falcons. On Saturday, October 8 the Falcons took on the Pembroke Dragons on the road. Coming into the contest, the Falcons were undefeated at 5-0. After a complete team effort, the Falcons defeated the Dragons 35-13 to propel CG Finney to 6-0 on the season. On offense, running back Cameron Odom put up 155 yards rushing for two touchdowns to put the Falcons in position to win the game. On defense, Maalik Thomas contributed with nine tackles. The Falcons will take on Alexander on the road on Friday, October 14 for the team’s next matchup.

Check back on each week for the announcement of the Coach of the Week winners and tune in to the John Murphy show each Wednesday afternoon to hear the winners announced on the show. All Coach of the Week winners will receive $1,000 for their high school football program and will be recognized on-field prior to the Bills vs. Browns game on December 18. Good luck to all of the high school football coaches this season from the Buffalo Bills and ADPRO Sports!
