Chiefs celebrate high school coaches of the week
Kansas City- The Chiefs will recognize two high school coaches every week that represents integrity and leadership on and off the field.
Winnetonka High School coach Benny Palmer and Saint Thomas Aquinas High School coach Randy Dreiling have been selected to be recognized as high school coaches of the week. Both coaches have led their teams to unbeaten records, as well as shown leadership on and off the field.
“It means a lot for our program,” Palmer said. “We have come a long way and still have a long way to go, but the one thing that has been constant has been getting this program in a place where we are respected. The players hear more than us coaches, and they want to be thought of as a good team. The results so far this season, and an award like this, validates that we are doing the right things. In turn, hopefully it will keep driving us to continue to improve this week, weeks to come, and into this offseason. Thank you to the Kansas City Chiefs and PrepsKC for their continued coverage and support of high school football and kids like ours at Winnetonka High School.”
“Hats off to our kids, they kept grinding,” Dreiling said. “We greatly appreciate the award.”
Both coaches will receive a $500 safety player grant from the Hunt Foundation, have an autograph football signed by Andy Reid, and a certificate of recognition for their their hard work on and off the field.
