The NFL High School Coach of the Week Program aids in the development of youth football. It provides high school football coaches the recognition they deserve, and provides high schools financial assistance in maintaining and upgrading their football programs.
Each week during the high school football season, the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington State Football Coaches Association select two high school football coaches as the Coach of the Week winners. Each recipient receives several items and privileges, including a $500 donation to the school's football program from the Seattle Seahawks and the NFL Youth Football Fund.
At the conclusion of the high school football season one coach is selected as the NFL High School Coach of the Year for the state of Washington. The NFL High School Coach of the Year receives a $2,000 grant.
Congratulations to the 2008 High School Coach of the Week award winners!
