The Arizona Cardinals Football Club and U.S. Army have named Williams Field High School's Steve Campbell 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, former Arizona high school coach Emil Nasser, 1060 AM radio host Dan Manucci, and U.S. Army representative Sergeant James Minter.
Campbell and his Black Hawks beat the visiting Notre Dame Prep Saints 32-30 last Friday night to improve their record to 6-0 on the season. After trailing the Saints by 14 points at halftime, the Black Hawks came back for the win which ended Notre Dame's 28-game winning streak
