            Each week, NFL representatives honor one head coach whose
            team played an outstanding game. An independent judging
            organization randomly selects an entry sent in to Staples
            on behalf of an accredited K-12 school in that football
            team's area.

NOTE:       Jim Fassel, Acorn Community High School officials and
            Staples representatives will be available for interviews
            after the assembly.
