Desert Ridge High School's Jeremy Hathcock named High School Coach-of-the-Week

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club and U.S. Army have named Desert Ridge High School's Jeremy Hathcock as the Cards "High School Coach-of-the-Week."

The Cards and U.S. Army "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, NBC-12 sports reporter Bruce Cooper, 16-year Arizona high school football official Bob Ferreira, AIA Director of Media Marketing Brian Bolitho, Channel 3 sports anchor Brad Cesmat, 1060 AM radio host Dan Manucci, and U.S. Army representative Sergeant Richard Meyer.

Hathcock guided his Jaguars to a 44-22 upset win over second-ranked (5A-I) Mountain Pointe High School last week. Desert Ridge pulled away in the fourth quarter by scoring 24 points including two defensive touchdowns.  

The award will be presented to Hathcock and the Desert Ridge High School football team on Thursday, October 21 at 3:00 p.m. at the school's football field (10045 E. Madero Avenue, Mesa). The Jaguars have this week off before hosting Westwood High School on October 29.  

The Cardinals 16-year "Coach-of-the-Week" program presents a selected high school coach with a certificate signed by Cardinals President William V. Bidwill and Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt. Cardinals Charities provides t-shirts for team members and awards the school $2,000 to support its football program.

A Cardinals player or alumnus, team mascot Big Red, and Community Relations Coordinator Sheldon Meeks will present the award.
