DENVER BRONCOS NAME PRIMERO’S SHELBY LANGFORD COACH OF THE WEEK

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Primero High School Head Coach Shelby Langford received the first 2010 NFL High School Coach of the Week honor by the Denver Broncos on Thursday.

The selection committee, comprised of Ring of Fame member Billy Thompson, Neil Devlin of The Denver Post and Andy Lindahl of KOA Radio (850 AM), recognized Langford for his team’s effort in its 21-20 come-from-behind victory over rival La Veta High School last Friday night. It was Primero’s first win over its rival since 1988, snapping a 22-year drought.

“The kids were thrilled,” Langford said. “I’ve never seen them this excited.”

The Bulldogs’ head coach came to Primero from Fort Morgan High School in Fort Morgan, Colo., where he was an assistant coach for three seasons from 2006-08. He took the reins of the Primero Bulldogs in 2009 and is now in his second season as head coach.

At 31 years old, the social studies teacher is a 2002 graduate of Pace University and holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology. He is a native of Fordyce, Ark., but he played high school football in Fort Morgan.

Langford is the first of 10 recipients of the award this season. Each week, the NFL Youth Football Fund donates $1,000 to the winning coaches’ football program. At the end of the year, the NFL/Denver Broncos High School Coach of the Year will be announced at the Broncos’ Jan. 2 game against San Diego at INVESCO Field at Mile High. The winner of the prestigious honor will receive a $2,000 donation to his school’s football program.
