Tempe, AZ – The Arizona Cardinals Football Club has named Coronado's B.J. Pasquel as the Cards "High School Coach-of-the-Week."
The Cards "Coach-of-the-Week" award is selected by a local sports panel consisting of Cardinals Director of Community Relations Luis Zendejas, Community Relations Coordinator Sheldon Meeks, Sports 620 AM anchor Paul Calvisi, NBC-12 sports reporter Bruce Cooper, 16-year Arizona high school football official Bob Ferreira, Cardinals radio analyst and Sports 620 AM talk show host Ron Wolfley and AIA Director of Media Marketing Brian Bolitho.
Pasquel and his Dons improved to 5-3 with a 28-21 victory over Seton Catholic last Friday night. The Dons scored on a late 36-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter and kept Seton out of the endzone to preserve the victory.
The award will be presented to Pasquel and the Coronado football team on Thursday, October 25 at 3:00 p.m. at the school's football field prior to the team's afternoon practice (2501 N. 74th Street, Scottsdale). The Dons will host Higley High School on Friday night at 7 p.m.
The Cardinals 13-year "Coach-of-the-Week" program presents a selected high school coach with a certificate signed by Cardinals Owner William V. Bidwill and Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt. Cardinals Charities provides t-shirts for team members and awards the school $1,000 to support its football program.
