BRONCOS NAME BRUSH'S RANDY DREITZ NFL HIGH SCHOOL COACH OF THE WEEK

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos have named Brush Beetdiggers head coach Randy Dreitz NFL High School Coach of the Week.  Dreitz continues to lead his top ranked Class 2A team of the Patriot League to a still undefeated record with a 42-41 overtime victory over Eaton last week to improve its record this season to 7-0.

“Eaton is very good,” Dreitz said.  “(The Reds) have got everything – size, speed, talent.  I don’t even know how we stayed on the field with them.  The kids are playing hard, and I‘ve got a great bunch.” 

Dreitz, 48, was born in Denver and graduated from Northglenn High School in 1981. He went on to become an All-Rocky Mountain Conference selection as a senior playing football at Southern Colorado University (now CSU Pueblo) where he earned a degree in physical education with a minor in mathematics in 1986.  He currently teaches math and weight training while also coaching football and track for the Beetdiggers.                     

The Denver Broncos will recognize 10 High School Coach of the Week honorees during the regular season.  Each weekly winner will receive a $1,000 donation from the NFL Youth Football Fund to be used in the school’s football program.  Additionally, during the Broncos’ home game on January 1st, the NFL/Denver Broncos High School Coach of the Year will be named and presented with a $2,000 donation to the school’s football program.  This year’s selection committee is led by Neil Devlin of the Denver Post and includes Ring of Fame Member Billy Thompson of the Denver Broncos and Andy Lindahl of KOA.
