The Oakland Raiders are back at the Coliseum for Week 13, but before they kick off against the Kansas City Chiefs, we're announcing the Tom Flores High School Coach of the Year, presented by Gatorade. Each week on Raiders.com, a coach from the Oakland and Las Vegas areas will be awarded with a $1,000 donation to the school’s football program.
Here are your two Coaches of the Year:
Ricky Rodriguez, from James Logan High School in Union City, was named the 2018 Tom Flores High School Football Coach of the Year. Coach Rodriguez has been a vital part of the program rebuild at James Logan High. That rebuild led to a 7-4 record and a playoff berth. In the classroom, the Colts held a team grade point average of 3.0. Coach Rodriguez looks to continue to lead James Logan into greatness.
