Podcast: Tennessee Titans High School Coach of the Year Lamar Brown
Lamar Brown, head coach of Knoxville West High School, was honored by the Tennessee Titans as the team's High School Coach of the Year.
Brown and Knoxville West wrapped up a 15-0 season by winning the 5A state championship. Knoxville West is ranked No. 93 in the High School Football 100, powered by NFL Play Football.
Brown was honored at last Sunday's Titans-Jaguars game, along with the other coaches to earn Coach of the Week distinction from the team.
"Coach Brown exemplifies everything we look for in a Coach of the Year winner – integrity, passion and grit," said Josh Corey, Titans Director of Marketing, Youth & Community Engagement. "His work at West High School extends far past winning a state championship as he continues to build a reputation for growing and fostering the highest level of character in these young men.
"We know high school coaches have the influence to impact young athletes in the most profound of ways, and Coach Brown is a shining example of that effort coming to fruition."
As the Coach of the Year award winner, Brown received a $2,500 grant from the Titans plus a $1,000 personal award from the NFL to benefit his football program. He will also be considered as the Titans' nominee for the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award. All 32 clubs nominate one coach for the award, and the winner will be announced in January.
Below, High School Football America's Jeff Fisher talks with Coach Brown about the award and how he believes the Titans are making Tennessee high school football better.
