Congratulations to Head Football Coach, George Gilbert of Clinton Central High School who was named IFCA Region 4 Colts/NFL Coach of the Week Honorable Mention for Week #10 of the season. Coach Gilbert’s Bulldogs improved to 5-2 on the season defeating North White 39-7 and earning their first Sectional victory since 2016.
Presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, this season marks the 21st year the Colts are recognizing outstanding high school football coaches throughout the state. Each week following a high school football weekend, one coach will be announced as the honoree.
All high school head coaches in the state are eligible regardless of their school size, league or division. Coaches are evaluated on various factors including the coach’s impact on the team, school and community, as well as the team’s performance. The honorees are selected by a panel of football media, former athletic directors and other football representatives from across the state.
At the conclusion of the high school season, each winning coach will receive a $1,000 donation from the NFL Foundation, as well as a commemorative plaque. What’s more, Anthem will contribute an additional $1,000 to the school’s athletic fund, as well as a donation of about 2,000 meals to a food shelter of the coach’s choice.
