Randy Cornwell: 2018 Don Shula NFL High School Coach Of The Year
Colville High School football coach Randy Cornwell was nominated by the Seattle Seahawks for the 2018 Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award, the NFL announced Wednesday. Cornwell was recognized for his "character and integrity, leadership, dedication to the community, commitment to player health and safety and on-field success." All 32 NFL clubs nominated a local high school coach for the honorable award named after Pro Football Hall of Famer Don Shula, the winningest coach in NFL History.
Cornwell led his team through a victorious season winning the State 1A football title with an 11-2 record. He also raised the 12 Flag prior to kickoff of the Seahawks' Week 17 game this past season after being named the "Coach of the Year" by the Seahawks.
"I thought winning the state championship was a great thrill, and it was, but nothing can top this," said Cornwell in an interview with Seahawks reporter Jackie Montgomery after raising the flag.
All Don Shula Award nominees are invited to the 2019 Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla. and will be honored throughout the week-long event. Each coach is allowed to bring along a senior from their roster to attend the event and participate in the Skills Showdown to represent their high school team.
