Bellingham High School football coach Ted Flint has been named High School Coach of the Week by the Seattle Seahawks. Each week during the prep season, the Seahawks and the Washington State Football Coaches Association honor two high school football coaches.
Flint has led the Red Raiders (5-2) to five straight victories, including a big 17-to-7 road win over Mountlake Terrace last week.
"It means that the team played hard and played well and won an important game," said Flint. "And the coaches did a good job planning to help win the game. It's all the coaches', all the players' award."
The Bellingham football program will receive a $500.00 donation from the the Seahawks and a a framed certificate signed by Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll.
"I haven't thought about it, but I'll probably hang it in my office at home," said Flint.
Bellingham plays city rival Sehome at Civic Stadium Friday, October 19th with first place in the Lake Division of the 2A Northwest Conference on the line.
