Don Clark named Jets’ Coach of the Week after big M-W win

Washingtonville’s Don Clark has been named Jets coach of the week after leading the Wizards to a historic win over Monroe-Woodbury last Friday.

Washingtonville hadn’t beaten the Crusaders since 1981, but put away the defending Section 9 Class AA champions 24-7. If the Jets had a player of the week award, it might have gone to Washingtonville quarterback Joe Tecklenburg, who rushed for 203 yards and two touchdowns in the Monroe-Woodbury win. The Jets’ coach of the week award is sponsored by Chase and the bank will donate $2,000 to the Washingtonville program.

Clark, who has been coaching for 24 years,  will be presented with a certificate, award ball and is invited to watch the Jets-Patriots game on Dec. 21 in Chase’s suite at MetLife Stadium. In its 19th year, the award is given to coaches in the tri-state area who serve the best interests of the game through the teaching of sound football fundamentals, the motivation of young players to achieve, and the promotion of youth football by way of dedication to their communities, their schools and their student-athletes.

Washingtonville (4-4) ends its season on at 7 p.m. Wednesday against visiting Middletown (5-3). The Wizards opened the season with a win against the Middies.
