2013 Coach of the Week Winners Honored at Chargers vs. Chief’s Game
Chargers Honor High School Coaches!
For more than a decade, the San Diego Chargers have teamed up with the NFL to host the Chargers’ annual High School Coach of the Week program. Annually, this program recognizes high school football coaches who have made a difference in the lives of their players through leadership, hard work and a special dedication to their young scholar athletes.
Each week during the 2013 high school football season, the Chargers teamed up with the California National Guard to select one outstanding Head Coach from throughout San Diego County to name as the High School Coach of the Week. The Coach received a $1,500 donation from the team for their school’s athletic programs and the selected coach was then highlighted on the KUSI Prep Pigskin Report.
At the end of the season one coach was selected as the overall Chargers Coach of the Year, and for the 2013 season the Chargers were delighted to select – Mike Wright from Crawford High School!
In 2013, no high school football story was more powerful than Coach Mike Wright and the Crawford Colts. Coach Wright led a team that had won just one game in the past three seasons on a 12 win campaign that included a runner-up finish In Division 5!
In honor of Coach Wright’s selection, the Chargers made an additional $2,500 donation to Crawford High School’s athletic program. Coach Wright was also honored on December 10th by Chargers Executive Vice President, A.G. Spanos as part of the annual PPR Silver Pigskin Gala.
