Fans Pick John Webb as Titans High School Coach of the Week

Posted Oct 10, 2013

Fan votes determined that John Webb of Rockwood High School is the Titans High School Coach of the Week for Week 6.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans are continuing their season-long series of fan polls to select the Titans High School Coach of the Week, and coach John Webb of Rockwood High School, has been chosen to receive the Week 6 honor.

The school will receive a $1,000 grant for its program from Titans Owner K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr.

Coach Webb’s Rockwood Tigers defeated the Class A third-ranked Greenback Cherokees 28-21. The Tigers played a steady game, controlling the clock and running 67 plays while only allowing the Cherokees to run 46 plays. Rockwood had not beaten Greenback in the past three years.

“Coach Webb works hard to get the best out of the students,” said Allen Reed, Rockwood Principal. “Coach sets great positive examples and truly is man of his word, and his athletes truly appreciate him.”

Coach Webb will be the team’s guest at the Titans’ season finale versus the Houston Texans on Dec. 29 when the team honors all 2013 Coach of the Week winners and announces the 2013 Titans High School Coach of the Year! Webb is also eligible for the Tennessee Titans Coach of the Year award. Mr. Adams will make an additional $2,000 grant to the Titans Coach of the Year winner.

In addition to Webb, this week’s nominees were Brian Waite of East Nashville High School, Science Hill High School’s Stacy Carter and Ernie Jackson of Haywood Side High School. Coach Webb won overwhelmingly with 88 percent of the vote. The other nominees remain eligible to win the honor during the remainder of this season.

Nominees are submitted by sports writers and broadcasters across the state with specific criteria in mind. The specific criteria include: beating a longtime rival, snapping a losing streak, defeating a defending champion, recording an amazing come-from-behind victory, and/or involvement in the local community.

Also considered is a coach’s commitment to his players’ safety through teaching the fundamentals of the game, proper tackling techniques, concussion management practices and adherence to heat and hydration guidelines.

Now in its 15th season, Mr. Adams has awarded more than $167,000 from the Titans Foundation to football programs across the state in honor of the Coach of the Week and Year winners.
