The Bills and New York National Guard Coach of the Week program has been a weekly staple of the high school football season on buffalobills.com, and this year grew to include Section V. In the inaugural year of the program’s exciting expansion, Dan Fichter of West Irondequoit High School took home the Coach of the Year award. Fichter was honored on the field before Sunday’s Bills-Packers game, along with Section VI Coach of the Year winner Tom Langworthy of Jamestown High School, and each of the Coach of the Week winners from both Sections V and VI.
In addition to the recognition online and on-field, each 2014 Coach of the Week winner received 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 and a Bills hat. The High School Coach of the Year winners each received an additional $1,000 grant for their football program.
Congratulations to all of the Coach of the Week winners this year, as well as Coach Fichter and Coach Langworthy for their Coach of the Year honors!
