Last week’s Section V Coach of the Week is Dan Fichter of West Irondequoit High School. On Friday, October 24, his team beat Canandaigua Academy 28 to 14 to remain in the Section V playoffs and improve to a 4-3 record on the season. For that big playoff win, the Bills and the New York National Guard are honoring Fichter 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, Fichter 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 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 Fichter!
