High School Coach of the Week presented by Whataburger
The Titans High School Coach of the Week presented by Whataburger is designed to recognize high school football coaches who continuously demonstrate dedication to their football programs, by building successful football teams both on and off the field.
Each week during the season, the Titans will select a High School Coach of the Week presented by Whataburger. The award aims to recognize a Tennessee high school football coach for an outstanding performance on Friday night and exceptional program leadership throughout the year.
The Coach of the Week will receive a $1,500 grant from the Titans Foundation to benefit their school's football program and a gift bag courtesy of Whataburger. In addition, all winning coaches will be invited to Nissan Stadium during the Titans vs. Texans game on December 17, for an end of the year the celebration down on the field.
Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards
Hosted at Nissan Stadium each November, the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards are presented to the top high school players – and one kicker – in nine classifications of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA).
More than 400 people – including the 30 finalists, their families, coaches, school administrators and members of the media from all parts of the state – attend the luncheon and awards presentation each year.
Tennessee Titans Fireball Fridays Game of the Week presented by Whataburger
The Tennessee Titans Fireball Fridays Game of the Week presented by Whataburger is designed to recognize excellence in high school athletics.
Each week throughout the season, we'll feature some of the top high school football matchups around Middle Tennessee and nominate them to be the Fireball Fridays Game of the Week presented by Whataburger. We'll select four games across the area and let the fans decide by voting where we'll head on Friday night. Fans are encouraged to vote for their preferred matchup throughout the week and the game with the most votes, will be selected as the Fireball Fridays Game of the Week presented by Whataburger.
Along with some very special guests, the Titans will travel to the host school on Friday night to engage with fans, bring some Titans swag, and give attendees the chance to win an autographed item from one of your favorite Titans players.
The host school for the Fireball Fridays Game of the Week presented by Whataburger will receive a $1,000 grant from the Titans Foundation to benefit their school's football program.

7-on-7 Passing Tournament
More than 200 high school players and coaches turn out for this annual tournament, hosted at the team's practice facility each July.
