US Cellular launches search for most valuable coach

US Cellular´s Most Valuable Coach program returns to honor high school coaches who lead by example, strengthen their teams and give back to their communities, the company said.

The winning coach will receive a USD 50,000 donation to the charitable organization of their choosing or their high school athletic department, a trip to Orlando, Fla., and on-field recognition at the Under Armour High School All-America Game.

Until 11:59 a.m. CT on Sept. 11, people can visit to nominate their favorite current high school coach who is an inspiring leader not just among their players, but also in their school and city.

US Cellular is teaming up with Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, Kurt Warner, to help identify the Most Valuable Coach. Warner will be part of a panel of judges who will choose the Most Valuable Coach based on leadership qualities and the positive impact they have had on their community, school and players.

Following the nomination period on Sept. 11, US Cellular will evaluate each nominee based on the positive impact they have had on their players, school and city as well as their leadership qualities. The Top 50 coaches will be announced on Sept. 19 at noon CT, which marks the beginning of public voting to select the Final 15 coaches, ending at 11:59 a.m. CT on Oct. 9. US Cellular will award the school of each Final 15 coach USD 5,000 to use however they choose, host a local event to celebrate and create a short video that shares the coach´s story which will be posted on
