LaPorte football coach Shellinger named Colts Coach of the Week

Bob Schellinger of LaPorte High School has been named the Colts/NFL Coach of the Week for admirably gathering his players to compete in a game just two days after the Slicers tragically lost teammate Jake West.

“The strength and courage that Coach Schellinger and his entire team have shown following the tragic loss of their beloved teammate is truly inspiring,” said Pete Ward, Indianapolis Colts COO. “The entire Colts family stands behind the team and the community as they grieve the loss of Jake West and work to carry on his legacy.”

Coach Schellinger will be honored at the high school on Wednesday morning.

At the conclusion of the high school football season, each winning coach will receive a framed certificate signed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano, Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson and Colts Youth Football Commissioner Mike Prior, as well as a $1,000 donation from the NFL Foundation. In addition, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield will contribute $1,000 for the school’s athletic fund.
