Armwood High School's Sean Callahan was the Buccaneers' 2003 High School Coach of the Year
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now accepting applications for the High School Coach of the Week program for the 2004 season.
Each week during the high school football season, the Buccaneers will select one Bay area high school football coach as their Coach of the Week. The honorees will receive several items and privileges, including but not limited to a certificate signed by NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue and Buccaneers General Manager Bruce Allen and Head Coach Jon Gruden, a $1000 donation to the school's football program courtesy of NFL charities, a Buccaneers Coach of the Week hat, recognition on Buccaneers.com and an opportunity to attend a Buccaneers regular season practice session.
At the end of the high school season, one coach will be named the High School Coach of the Year.
A number of factors are taken into account when selecting the Buccaneers Coach of the Week. The coach's impact on his team, school and community all weigh heavily in determining the weekly winner. The program is designed to recognize high school coaches who, through hard work and dedication, transform the best available athletes into high-potential football players.
