In a battle of two of the top teams in Class AA of Section V, the Aquinas Institute Little Irish beat the Pittsford Panthers 16-13 last Saturday, October 4. For that big win, the Bills and the New York National Guard are honoring Aquinas’ Head Coach Chris Battaglia with this week’s Section V Coach of the Week Award.
The Coach of the Week program has been a weekly staple of the high school football season on buffalobills.com and this year was expanded to Section V. In addition to the recognition online, Battaglia and other winning coaches receive a $1,000 grant for their football programs from the Bills and the New York National Guard, a certificate signed by Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon, General Manager Doug Whaley, and Head Coach Doug Marrone recognizing their accomplishment, a Bills hat, and an invitation to join the Bills on-field December 14th for pregame ceremonies prior to kickoff against the Green Bay Packers. At that point, a High School Coach of the Year will be selected for sections V and VI, with each winner receiving an additional $1,000 grant for their football program.
Congratulations to Coach Battaglia!
