Bills & ADPRO Sports HS Coach of the Week

Posted by on November 9, 2016 – 5:17 pm


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 is Eric Rupp, head coach of the Lancaster Legends. On Friday, Nov. 4, Lancaster took on Orchard Park in the Section VI – Class AA championship. The Legends put on a dominant performance, resulting in a 27-7 victory over the Quakers and the team’s first title since 1999. Leading the way for the Legends on offense was junior quarterback Ryan Mansell who compiled 154 yards passing and a touchdown. On defense, Lancaster held Orchard Park scoreless until the fourth quarter. With the win, the 10-0 Legends will advance to the Far West Regionals against Victor.


The Rochester Region Coach of the Week is Tim Sawyer, head coach of the Alexander Trojans. The Trojans faced the Clyde-Savannah Golden Eagles in the Section V – Class D championship game on Friday, Nov. 4. The Trojans, led by senior quarterback PJ Brennan, defeated the Golden Eagles 19-6 to claim the school’s first sectional title. Brennan finished the game with two touchdowns on the ground and another through the air. On defense, sophomore cornerback Chris McClinic, helped the Trojans secure the win with an interception. The victory propels the Trojans to 10-0 on the season and solidifies the team’s spot in the upcoming Far West Regionals against Maple Grove.

Check back on each week for the announcement of the Coach of the Week winners and tune in to the John Murphy show each Tuesday 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!
