Indianapolis – Josh Shattuck of Elkhart High School has been named the Colts/NFL Coach of the Week, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, the Indianapolis Colts said today.

Shattuck, who is 4-0 in his first year at the school, was nominated and selected for the award after his Class 6A, eighth-ranked Lions defeated Penn 20-19. It was the first time Penn has ever lost to Elkhart at Rice Field in Elkhart.

Region 1:  Joe O’Connell – River Forest Region 7:  Jason Simmons – Ben Davis
Region 3:  Josh Gerber – Norwell Region 8:  Jake Gilbert – Westfield
Region 4:  Troy Burgess – Frontier Region 9:  Scott Buening – Southridge
Region 5:  Jon Kirschner – Hamilton Heights Region 10:  James Bragg – Floyd Central
Region 6:  Mike Gillin – Mooresville


This season marks the 21st year the Colts are recognizing outstanding high school football coaches throughout the state.  Each week following a high school football weekend, one coach will be announced as the honoree.

All high school head coaches in the state are eligible regardless of their school size, league or division. Coaches are evaluated on various factors including the coach’s impact on the team, school and community, as well as the team’s performance.  The honorees are selected by a panel of football media, former athletic directors and other football representatives from across the state.

At the conclusion of the high school season, each winning coach will receive a $1,000 donation from the NFL Foundation, as well as a commemorative plaque.  What’s more, Anthem will contribute an additional $1,000 to the school’s athletic fund, as well as a donation of about 2,000 meals to a food shelter of the coach’s choice.
