Kraig Kurzanski named Bills H.S. Coach of the Week

Orchard Park, NY - The Buffalo Bills announced that Coach Kraig Kurzanski of Williamsville South High School has been named the

Buffalo Bills High School Football Coach of the Week after the first weekend of the 2008 high school football season.

On September 5, 2008 the visiting Williamsville South Billies traveled to Cheektowaga Central HS, last season's Class A

Finalist, to take on the Warriors in the season opener. The Billies, led by running backs Yahs Williams and All-WNY candidate

Deashaune Clark, and defensive tackle Kevin Gerlach, were impressive in their season opener with a 27-13 victory. Williamsville

South, which was 2-8 last season, won their season opener for the first time in 8 years.

This is the twelfth consecutive year of the Buffalo Bills Coach of the Week program. Each week during the 11-week high school

football season, a committee appointed by the Buffalo Bills selects a head football coach as Coach of the Week. The honorees

will receive a certificate signed by Dick Jauron, Buffalo Bills head coach, Russ Brandon, Buffalo Bills chief operating officer,

and Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner, plus a Buffalo Bills Coach of the Week cap and a $1,000 donation to the school's football

program from the Buffalo Bills Youth Foundation. Recognition of the winning coach will be shown on the Buffalo Bills official

website at

At the end of the season, one of the weekly award winners will be named Coach of the Year and will receive and additional $1,000

donation to the school's football program. All head football coaches in Western New York are eligible for Coach of the Week,

regardless of their high school's division or affiliation.
