Jonathan Marshall Named New England Patriots High School Coach of the Year
The New England Patriots honored Randolph High School head coach Jonathan Marshall with the team's 2021 High School Coach of the Year award.
Marshall led Randolph to the school's first-ever Massachusetts high school football championship. Randolph won the Massachusetts Division 8 Super Bowl championship by beating Hull 20-14 on December 1 at Gillette Stadium, home of the Patriots.
NFL Legend Andre Tippett, Patriots' Executive Director of Community Affairs, met with Marshall, his staff, and his team. Tippett, who is enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, College Football Hall of Fame, and Patriots Hall of Fame, presented the football program with a $2,000 donation on behalf of the Patriots Foundation.
"Coach Marshall and his Randolph Blue Devils took on the mantra of grit and resiliency, and lived by one of the team’s biggest core values of 'Winners do more,'" Tippett said.
Marshall is now eligible for the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award. Each team nominates one coach for the award. Marshall will join 31 other nominees at the 2021 Pro Bowl in Las Vegas.
From the nominees, two finalists will be selected to attend Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles. The winner will be announced and honored at the Pro Bowl.
The winner of the Don Shula Award will receive $12,500 and his high school football program will be awarded $17,500. The second finalist will receive $7,500 and his high school football program will receive $12,500. All other nominees will receive $1,000.
