The Buffalo Region Coach of the Week for Week 7 is Mike Fatta, head coach of the Cheektowaga Warriors. On Friday, Oct. 14, Cheektowaga took on rival Maryvale at home. Coming into the contest, both teams were undefeated at 6-0. After a hard fought game on both sides, Cheektowaga came away with a 34-26 victory over Maryvale in overtime to propel the Warriors to a perfect 7-0 on the season. Leading the way for the Warriors on offense was senior quarterback Eric Bartnik who put up 178 yards and three touchdowns on the ground, and another 345 yards passing for two touchdowns. On defense junior cornerback Alekzander Bryant put the game away when he intercepted Maryvale on a critical fourth down in OT. The Warriors, who have now clinched the B West Division title, will host Burgard for a playoff game on Friday, Oct. 21.
The Rochester Region Coach of the Week for Week 7 is Brennan Briggs, head coach of the Batavia Blue Devils. On Friday, Oct. 14 the Blue Devils traveled to Clyde-Savannah for a non-conference matchup.
