High School Coach of the Week

The Carolina Panthers honor high school football coaches through the Coach of the Week (COW) program. COW recognizes high school coaches who, through their hard work and dedication to young people, have made a difference in the lives of their players, school and community, and provides high schools with financial assistance to help maintain and upgrade their football programs.

Each week during the high school football season, the Panthers will select one high school football coach as the COW winner, who will receive a $1,200 donation from Carolina Panthers Charities and the NFL to his school's athletic department. Winning coaches will also get a personalized Carolina Panthers game ball and be honored during a special on-field ceremony at a Panthers home game.

All high school coaches in North and South Carolina are eligible for the COW regardless of the school's size, league or classification. However, previous COW winners may not be nominated.

High school athletic directors and principals in North and South Carolina and media members covering high school football in North and South Carolina are encouraged to nominate outstanding coaches in their region for the award by downloading and completing the nomination form.
