ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Burlington High School Head Coach Glynn Higgs was named the NFL/Broncos High School Coach of the Week after his team snapped Yuma High School’s 16-game winning streak with a 33-28 victory, the Denver Broncos announced Thursday.

In that contest, the Cougars overcame a 21-0 deficit to secure the win against Yuma and moved Higgs’ all-time record to 173-47 as a head coach.

“Every coach preaches that you play until the whistle and you play until the end,” Higgs said. “I think you’re fortunate if you’ve kept players believing and playing hard. I don’t know what exactly triggered it, but we just kept after it.”

The 53-year-old head coach is a native of Fowler, Colo., where he graduated from Fowler High School in 1975. He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Northern Colorado in 1980 before receiving a master’s degree in education administration from Colorado State University in 1988. In addition to coaching varsity football, he is a physical education instructor at Burlington.

Higgs is the fourth recipient of the NFL/Broncos Coach of the Week honor, joining Wray’s Levi Kramer,Regis Jesuit’s Mark Nolan, and Shelby Langford of Primero High School. Each weekly winner will receive a $1,000 donation from the NFL Youth Football Fund to be used for the school’s football program.

At the end of the season, each weekly winner, along with a pool of candidates from the state tournaments, will be eligible for the 2010 NFL/Denver Broncos High School Coach of the Year Award to be named at the Broncos’ Jan. 2 game at INVESCO Field at Mile High Stadium against San Diego. The winner of that prestigious honor will be given a $2,000 donation to his school’s football program.
