YOU CAN VOTE UNTIL 11:59 PM ON SATURDAY 1/23!

The winner of the annual Detroit Lions High School Football Coach of the Year award will be determined by vote from each of our five high school football media panelists, as well as one vote from the general public. The Detroit Lions High School Football Coach of the Week/Year panel consists of five high school football media members - Mick McCabe (Detroit Free Press), Hugh Bernreuter (Saginaw News), Bret Bakita (WOOD Radio-106.9 FM, ESPN 96.1 FM-Fox 17/Grand Rapids), James Cook (Traverse City Record-Eagle) and Scott DeCamp (MLive-Muskegon Chronicle).

The coach with the most votes from the general public vote will receive one vote to go along with the five media panelist votes to determine a winner. In the case of a tie, the Detroit Lions' Director of Football Education will be the deciding vote.

The winning coach receives a $3,000 donation to his school's football program and will be recognized as the Detroit Lions nomination for the Don Shula High School Football Coach of the Year.

During the six-week Michigan high school football regular season, this panel also selected one coach that best develops his players' character, discipline, and football skill in addition to emphasizing player health and safety in their program, and is recognized as the Detroit Lions High School Football Coach of the Week.

The 2020 program will award $12,000 to aid in the development and promotion of high school football in the state of Michigan, thanks to contributions from the Detroit Lions and the NFL Foundation.
