A Jackson football coach is a finalist in a USA Today contest for the "Best High School Football Coach in the U.S.".
Herb Brogan of Lumen Christi High School is one of eight coaches in Michigan vying for that honor. Brogan has been the football coach for 33 seasons, with a record of 291-74-0.
The contest winner will get $2,000 for its athletic department. Second through fifth places also receive cash prizes for the athletic departments. All eight coaches will also receive a banner for their school.
There will be three rounds of voting. The state round begins at noon (ET) Sept. 30 and ends at noon (ET) Oct. 8. The 51 winners – each state plus Washington, D.C. - advance to a regional round, where they will be divided among eight regions of six or seven coaches apiece. The regional round begins at noon (ET) Oct. 9 and ends at noon (ET) Oct. 18. The eight regional winners move onto the national round, which starts at noon (ET) Oct. 21 and ends at noon (ET) Oct. 29. The champion is crowned based on most votes in the final round.
