Titans Honor David Lipscomb's Glenn McCadams as High School Coach of the Week

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Titans announced today that Glenn McCadams, head football coach of David Lipscomb High School in Nashville, TN, has been named as the Titans High School Football Coach of the Week for week five.  His team took the lead in the third quarter and held on to defeat previously unbeaten Goodpasture 21-20.  Goodpasture entered the contest as the fourth-ranked 3-A team in the state.

The win marks the third consecutive victory for David Lipscomb after losing their opening two games this year.

"I feel honored," said Coach McCadams. "Our kids did all the work, I just watched. We were very fortunate in that Goodpasture has a great team.  We just happened to be ahead by one point when the game ended."

Through the Titans Foundation, team owner K.S. "Bud" Adams, Jr. will make a $1,000 contribution to the David Lipscomb High School football program in Coach McCadams' honor.

"High school football enjoys a great tradition in Tennessee," said Adams.  "That tradition is based not only on the outstanding quality of play but on the devotion of their coaches who continue to develop high school football players into young men of strong character.  I'm very pleased to underwrite this program that recognizes the efforts of so many talented high school coaches across the state!"

Coach McCadams will be the team's guest at the Titans vs. Houston Texans contest on December 19th when the team honors all 2010 Coach of the Week winners and announces the winner of the 2010 Coach of the Year!  Coach McCadams is now eligible for the Tennessee Titans Coach of the Year award and Adams will make an additional $2,000 grant to the Titans Coach of the Year winner on that date.

Also receiving strong consideration in this week's poll was Ricky Bowers of Ensworth High School. Coach Bowers led his Tigers in a tremendous upset past class 6A number one ranked Smyrna High School 30-14.  Tab Vowell of Jackson North Side also received support in the voting.  His team defeated class 4A number two ranked Liberty High School in a extremely close game 21-20.  

Now in its 12th season, Mr. Adams has awarded more than $131,000 from the Titans Foundation to football programs across the state in honor of the Coach of the Week winners. 

"High school football coaches can play a role in the lives of their players that will have lasting results," said NFL director of football operations Gene Washington.  "A competitive spirit, good sportsmanship and character development are some of the issues confronted on a daily basis by football coaches.  We are thankful for the many coaches around the country who assume such a demanding role."

The criterion for selection includes the coach's impact on his team, school and community.  A statewide media panel votes each week to determine the weekly winner.  All high school football coaches in Tennessee, regardless of their school's size, league, or division, are eligible to be selected each week.  The program is designed to recognize high school coaches who transform, through their hard work and dedication, student-athletes into the best possible football players and citizens in their community.
