The Kansas City Chiefs have announced their Coach of the Week honors for the third week of the 2014 season. This week's honors go to Gregg Webb of Truman High School in Missouri and Jeremy Milne of Turner High School in Kansas.
Truman won its third straight game last week with a thrilling 31-28 win over Liberty. Webb has led the Patriots to three straight wins, tripling their win total from the last two seasons combined.
Milne and the Golden Bears are also on a three-game winning streak. Milne's team has already won more games than they did all of last year and defeated Bishop Ward in a tough 13-6 victory this past week.
As a result, both schools will receive a $500 grant towards player health and safety equipment and/or education. Webb and Milne will be presented with congratulatory footballs autographed by Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid and a certificate recognizing their selection. Each coach is now a finalist for their respective state's Chiefs High School Coach of the Year Award, which will be announced at the conclusion of the football season.

The program is designed to recognize and reward Kansas City area high school coaches who have created successful programs for teams and players both on and off of the playing field.
