(Columbus) Columbus High School Football Coach Andy Selgrad was recently named the Green Bay Packers High School Coach of the Year. The Wisconsin Football Coaches Association has been awarding Coach of the Year since 1976 and this year marks 25 years of the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association and the Green Bay Packers presenting the award together. The first was in 1998.
Columbus Schools Superintendent Jacob Flood talks about the impact of the award on the district.
“Oh absolutely,” Flood said. “It kinda puts us on that statewide stage.”
Flood says that the attention is well deserved.
“It just draws positive attention,” said Flood. “And once again, it’s all well-deserved attention (and) it’s been through hard work.”
Flood says Selgrad being named Coach of the Year is a very special honor and is well deserved after the Columbus High School football team won their third state championship in November.
